TV unit nabs rights to Vietnamese movie

Sony Pictures Television Intl. has acquired Asian TV rights to Vietnamese movie “Long-Legged Beauty.”

Pic is a first for production house Galaxy Studio and is the debut feature of shorts helmer Vu Ngoc Dang, who won Vietnam’s National Youth Film Contest for short movie. Pic headed the Vietnamese B.O. and was a nominee for film at the Vietnamese Film Awards.
