Kino Lorber Nabs U.S. Rights To Auteuil’s ‘Marius’ And ‘Fanny’

Kino Lorber Will Release Both Films in Early 2014

Kino Lorber has nabbed all U.S. rights to Daniel Auteuil’s “Marius” and “Fanny,” the French star-turned-helmer’s follow up to “The Well-Digger’s Daughter.”

Both pics are part of French author Marcel Pagnol’s classic trilogy, which opened with “The Well-Digger’s Daughter” (“La Fille du puisatier”).

Released by Kino Lorber in July 2012,  “Daughter” had a healthy run at the U.S. B.O., grossing $386,368 and earning strong reviews.

Kino Lorber was the natural choice for the U.S. distribution of Marius and Fanny,” wrote Saya Huddleston, VP of Pathe Intl.. “Their track record in giving due exposure to Daniel Auteuil’s directorial debut, ‘The Well-Digger’s Daughter,’ is excellent.”

Added Kino Lorber CEO Richard Lorber, “Following his delectable debut with ‘The Well-Digger’s Daughter,’ M. Auteuil surpasses himself in masterfully fusing experience with emotion through his rendering of the love saga of ‘Marius’ and ‘Fanny.’

All three movies are lead-produced by Les Films Alain Sarde. Pathe co-produced, handled the French distribution and reps international sales.

Kino Lorber will release both “Marius” and “Fanny” in theaters in early 2014.

Unveiled at Toronto, the deal was negotiated by Lorber and Pathe’s head of international Muriel Sauzay.

Pathe has nine films playing at Toronto, including “Mandela,” “Philomena” and “Attila Marcel.”
