Woody Allen pic pre-sold to Germany, Italy

Imagina Intl. Sales adds key territories to Cannes opener

MADRID — Spain’s Imagina Intl. Sales has added significant pre-sales to Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris,” inking rights with top-notch Euro distributors in Germany (Concorde) and Italy (Medusa).

Sony Pictures Classics took North America in a deal announced last month. Mars Films, France’s fifth biggest indie distrib, has Gallic rights.

Beyond these top-distributor deals in key territories, Sun Distribution has nabbed Latin America, Central Partnership has taken Russia, Scanbox will release in Scandinavia, Paradiso in Benelux, Kino Swiat in Poland and Frenetic in Switzerland.

Many distribs on “Midnight” are Allen regulars, who have seen boffo returns from his pics.

Further deals include territories such as Israel (Shapira), Romania (Prorom Media), Hong Kong (Golden Scene) and Taiwan (Catchplay).

“Midnight,” which shot last summer in Paris, will open the 64th Cannes Film Festival on May 11.

Pic stars Kathy Bates, Adrien Brody, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, Marion Cotillard, Rachel McAdams, Michael Sheen and Owen Wilson.

Allen’s romantic comedy turns on a family traveling to Paris for business. “Midnight” is produced by Letty Aronson, Steve Tenenbaum and Jaumes Roures, and financed by Roures’ Mediapro as the second in a three-pic production deal between Barcelona-based Mediapro and Aronson’s Gravier Prods.

Madrid-based sales agent Imagina is in talks with distributors from other territories — such as Japan and Australia — that could prompt deals at Berlin’s European Film Market.
