TWC takes 'Fortress'
The Weinstein Co. continues to diversify its slate, picking up English-language rights to nature docu “The Besieged Fortress” from French firm TF1 Intl. Movie centers on termites whose African habitat is threatened by a storm and subsequent ant invaders. Pic is described as a “wildlife documentary shot like a true disaster movie.” “Fortress” hopes to pick up on the same vibe as “March of the Penguins,” another nature doc from France that humanized its nonhuman protags. “Fortress” will be redone for Stateside release with English voiceovers a la “Penguins.”
