Picture Tree adds sales for 'Mary Queen of Scots'

LONDON — Synkronized has picked up U.S. rights to the film “Victor ‘Young’ Perez” in a deal inked with international sales and production outfit Picture Tree Intl.

Millennium, Synkronized’s theatrical distribution partner, will handle the U.S. release of the film, which is based on the true story of the Tunisian-Jewish world boxing champion.

The pic is set for a wide release in France by Ocean Filmon on Nov. 20. Amarok Films in Mexico has signed a pan-Latin American deal for the film. Luxor is taking over the film’s distribution rights in CIS and Baltic countries, while Sejong Communications will release it in South Korea. Advanced negotiations are also underway for other European and Asian territories.

PTI has also licensed the rights to costumer “Mary Queen of Scots,” a biopic of Mary Stuart, to Curious Film for the Australian and New Zealand markets, and to Caravella DDC/Carmen Group for CIS countries. The film was released in Switzerland by Pathe Suisse last week.

PTI is in final negotiations regarding other territories, including the U.S., Eastern Europe and the U.K. The pic was screened at the AFI Festival.
