Weinstein Co. near deal on ‘Song for Marion’

Gemma Arterton, Vanessa Redgrave star in Britpic

The Weinstein Company is nearing a deal for U.S. rights to Paul Andrew Williams’ “Song for Marion,” toplining Gemma Arterton and Vanessa Redgrave.

Pic, which also stars Christopher Eccleston and Terence Stamp, is a London-set comedic drama about a grumpy elderly man who is reluctantly inspired by his wife Marion to join an unconventional local choir.

Ken Marshall produces the pic through his Steel Mill Pictures banner, which he set up with Williams.

Coolmore Productions, Egoli Tossell Film and Film House Germany also produce.

Williams’ previous credits include “London to Brighton,” “The Cottage” and last year’s “Cherry Tree Lane.”

Williams penned the script for “Song for Marion,” which was included in the 2010 Brit List for best unproduced screenplays.

Entertainment One have U.K. rights to the film while its Oz arm Hopscotch has Australian rights.

Ascot Elite nabbed German rights for the pic in Berlin earlier this year.
