Lucky Red nabs ‘Incendies’

Distrib takes Middle East-set pic for Italy

Italy’s Lucky Red has acquired Italian rights to Canadian helmer Denis Villeneuve’s Middle East-set drama “Incendies,” which is emerging as a Venice Days standout.

Based on a prize-winning play by Lebanon-born Wajdi Mouawad, “Incendies” is about twins, a brother and sister, who travel to the Middle East searching for their roots.

“Incendies” is the fourth feature by Villeneuve, whose “Polytechnique” unspooled in Cannes Directors’ Fortnight last year.

Produced by Canada’s TS Prods., “Incendies,” which will segue from Venice to Toronto, is being sold by eOne Entertainment Intl.
