Studio Canal picks up ‘Red,’ ‘Cotton’

Co. nabs film rights at AFM

StudioCanal is adding genre fare to its traditionally arthouse-oriented lineup for AFM.

The Paris-based sales company has nabbed international rights to “Red Riding,” a three-part thriller penned by Tony Grisoni (“Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,”) and co-produced by Channel 4 and Andrew Eaton and Michael Winterbottom’s Revolution Entertainment.

Adapted from David Peace’s novel, the trilogy is based on the six-year police investigation of Peter William Suttcliffe, aka “the Yorkshire Ripper,” who killed 12 women in Northern England in the 1970s.

The three pics will be released separately and will be directed by three different helmers: Julian Jarrold, James Marsh and Anand Tucker.

In post-production, the first pic stars Andrew Garfield, Rebecca Hall and Sean Bean.

StudioCanal also picked up “Cotton,” a horror film in the vein of “Cloverfield” and “Blair Witch Project” that was directed by Huck Botko and Andrew Gurland and produced by Eli Roth for Strike Entertainment.

Story concerns an evangelical minister who turns against religion and decides to participate in a documentary in which he practices his last exorcism.
