Sales mount for ‘Vacation’

Icon scores with Gibson pic

Stewart Till’s Icon Entertainment Intl. has scored a slew of sales for Mel Gibson’s “How I Spent My Summer Vacation.”

Telemunchen for Germany, Eagle for Italy, Metropolitan for France, Paradiso for Benelux, Revolutionary Releasing for Eastern Europe, Svensk for Scandinavia, Odeon for Greece, Ascot Elite for Switzerland, Lusomundo for Portugal, Fida for Turkey, Nu Metro for South Africa, Prime Pictures for the Middle East, Pioneer for Philippines, PT Amero for Indonesia, SSG for Taiwan and Sahamongkolfilm for Thailand have all acquired the pic.

Gibson plays a career criminal caught by Mexican authorities and sent to a tough prison run by gangs.

Icon Entertainment Intl. is releasing the pic in the U.K., Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, while Gibson and Bruce Davey’s Icon Prods. will handle North American rights.

Former Polygram chief Till completed his deal to acquire the U.K.-based arm of Gibson and Davey’s Icon Group in November after months of negotiations.
