Ascot takes ‘Reader,’ ‘Box’

Distrib banks on fans of Schlink, Kelly

BERLIN — Ascot Elite Entertainment has picked up Swiss theatrical and DVD rights to Stephen Daldry’s “The Reader,” starring Nicole Kidman and Ralph Fiennes, and Richard Kelly’s “The Box,” starring Cameron Diaz and James Marsden.

“The Reader” is based on the bestselling novel by Bernhard Schlink, which has enjoyed huge success in Switzerland.

Ascot is hoping “The Box” generates as much excitement as Kelly’s “Donnie Darko,” which has proved one of the hottest selling DVD library titles for the Zurich-based distrib and its German subsidiary Ascot Elite Home Entertainment.
