Strand makes way for ‘Service Entrance’

French comedy to open in U.S. this year

Strand Releasing has acquired U.S. rights to Philippe Le Guay’s comedy “Service Entrance” and is planning a release late this year.

Pic, produced by Philippe Rous-selet and his company Vendome Pictures, recently saw its North American premiere at Rendezvous with French Cinema in New York.

“Service Entrance” stars Fabrice Luchini, Sandrine Kiberlain, Carmen Maura and Natalia Verbeke. Set in Paris in 1960, story centers on a conservative couple whose world is turned upside down when Spanish maids begin commingling with the family.

Deal was concluded between Jon Gerrans of Strand and Charlotte Boucon of SND Groupe M6.

SND handles France and international on “Service Entrance,” which has already been sold to more than 40 territories. “Service,” previously titled “The Women on the Sixth Floor,” had its world premiere at the Berlinale and has seen more than 1.5 million admissions in France since it opened Feb. 16.

Strand’s current slate includes “Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives,” “I’m Glad My Mother Is Alive” and “Carancho.”
