Distrib plans day and date theatrical, VOD release
Sold by Gallic mini-major StudioCanal, Daniele Thompson’s “Change of Plans” has been picked up by IFC for U.S. theatrical and video-on-demand distribution.IFC plans a day and date theatrical and VOD release of “Plans” for early 2010. A standout sales title at January’s Unifrance Rendez-Vous in Paris and again at Berlin, “Plans” toplines Dany Boon (“Welcome to the Sticks”) in a dinner party comedy of manners. Marina Hands (“Lady Chatterly’s Lover”) and Emmanuelle Seigner (“The Diving Bell and the Butterfly”) co-star in Thompson’s fourth feature. “Plans” nabbed a strong 2 million admissions ($15.9 million) in France after its bow in France earlier this year.
