Constantin, Icon has ‘Rose’ rights

Duo to distribute Piaf bio

U.K.’s Icon and Germany’s Constantin have scored distribution on the $25 million Edith Piaf biopic “La Vie en Rose,” being sold internationally by TF1 Intl.

Deals follow the eight-minute promo screenings that had some distribs blubbering in the aisles Friday and Saturday. Marion Cottillard plays Piaf in the pic, which uses the original tunes, including the title song (penned by the legendary chanteuse) and “Je Ne Regrette Rien.”

New sales follow Icon’s acquisition of the film for Australia and Movie Eye’s acquisition for Japan.

The film, produced by Alain Goldman’s Legende, recently finished shooting and is slated to be ready by the end of this year. TFM, TF1’s Gallic distribution arm, will release the film wide in France on Feb. 14.

TF1 is also working on a music album of Piaf’s songs, details of which are under wraps.
