Acquires U.S. rights to Juan Diego Solana's sci-fi romancer
3D in 2013. Aton Soumache, Dimitri Rassam, Alexis Vonarb, Claude Leger and Jonathan Vanger produced and Phil Hope and James W. Skotchdopole serve as exec producers. “Upside,” penned by Solana, centers on a man kept apart from the girl he has loved his entire life. He must risk everything to access the forbidden world of affluence that exists literally above him while manipulating the gravitational force that physically pulls him back to his world. Millennium Entertainment’s Tristen Tuckfield negotiated the deal with Gregoire Melin from Kinology, who also coproduced the film alongside Frederique Dumas from Studio 37/Orange.
