‘Elvis’ set for int’l tour

Arclight takes rights to Rhys-Meyers starrer

SYDNEY — Arclight Films has nabbed international sales rights to its first mini, CBS’ Elvis Presley bio “Elvis.”

Hamilton Arclight intends to permanently position itself in the TV sector, specializing in dramas.

The 3-year-old Los Angeles-based sales banner headed by Australian Gary Hamilton acquired the rights through its association with German media fund Apollo.

“Elvis” stars Jonathan Rhys-Meyers as the King, with Camryn Manheim as his mom. Arclight will pitch “Elvis” to buyers at next month’s Mip TV market in Cannes.

Via Apollo, Arclight previously collared international rights to “Reefer Comedy,” the musical starring Neve Campbell and Alan Cumming that preemed at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and aired Stateside on Showtime. It will play theatrically outside the U.S.

Also from Apollo, Arclight got foreign dibs on “The Librarian,” a TNT telepic that stars Noah Wyle and Kyle MacLachlan.
