StudioCanal sells ‘My Way’ to several distribs

Biopic has grossed $8.2 mil in France

PARIS — “My Way,” Florent-Emilio Siri’s biopic of iconic French singer Claude Francois, has been sold by StudioCanal to several leading distribs.

The $26.3 million drama was nabbed by CCC (Japan), Tanweer (Asia), Gulf (Middle East), Seville eOne (Canada), Becker (Australia) and Village (Greece).

Harold Van Lier, head of international sales at StudioCanal, said “My Way” had also sparked interest from German and U.S. buyers.

StudioCanal released “My Way” on March 14 in Gaul, where it has grossed €6.2 million ($8.2 million) through March 20. It will also release the film in the U.K.

The pic depicts the rise and fall of Francois (Jeremy Renier), whose career was at its height during the 1960s and ’70s. He died when he was 39. His best-known song, “Comme d’habitude,” was adapted and made famous by Frank Sinatra as “My Way.”

It is produced by Cyril Colbeau-Justin and Jean-Baptiste Dupont at Gaul’s LGM. StudioCanal is teaming with LGM on family comedy “Billy and Buddy,” based on a comicbook.
