TWC takes Bunch bundle

French sales-house sells films to Weinsteins

French sales-house Wild Bunch has sold a trio of pics to the Weinstein Co.

TWC took U.S.-only rights to “Martyrs,” a chiller helmed by Pascal Laugier; U.S. rights to Agnes Merlet’s English-language drama “Dorothy Mills”; and North America and Australia/New Zealand rights to futuristic thriller “Dante 01,” by “Delicatessen” co-helmer Marc Caro.

“Martyrs,” produced by Eskwad and TCB Film, stars Morjane Alaoui and Mylene Jampanoi in the story a girl who emerges from a yearlong abduction and forms a bond with another girl while in recovery.

Ireland-set “Mills” sees a village troubled by a 15-year-old girl who is believed to have supernatural powers.

“Dante,” Caro’s first solo-helming effort, is set in a space prison where a prisoner with monstrous powers is infecting other inmates.
