Hanway to rep Merchant Ivory catalog

Library includes 'Howards End' and 'Heat and Dust'

LONDON — Merchant Ivory Prods. has appointed Hanway Films to handle worldwide rights to its library of 21 features, including “Howards End,” “Heat and Dust” and “Shakespeare Wallah.”

The library, which has been fully remastered by director James Ivory, does not include several of Merchant Ivory’s best-known and later films, such as “Room With a View” and “The Remains of the Day,” but focuses on many lesser known titles from the beginning and middle of their career.

It also includes several early short films by Ivory and his late partner Merchant, which have never previously been released.

Tim Haslam, CEO of HanWay, said, “This is a very important catalog of films which are recognized and admired around the world for their quality and brand.”

Merchant Ivory CEO Paul Bradley added, “Both Merchant Ivory and Hanway are vastly experienced independent operators and are perfectly attuned to maximize the abundant new sales opportunities arising in the market. We share an understanding born out of ambitious independent filmmaking”

Hanway also represents the libraries of the Recorded Picture Co. and Wim Wenders.
