Myriad Takes Int'l Distribution on Biel,

Drama to be screened for Cannes buyers

Rounding out its Cannes slate, Myriad Pictures has acquired international distribution rights to Francesca Gregorini’s “Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes,” starring Jessica Biel and Kaya Scodelario.

“Tanner Hall” director Gregorini helmed from her own script and produced with Matthew R. Brady.

The film, which premiered at Sundance in January, will be screened for buyers at Cannes.

“Emanuel,” which also stars Alfred Molina, Aneurin Barnard, Jimmi Simpson and Frances O’Connor, centers on a sensitive teen who lives with her father and stepmother and develops a bond with a young mother who moves in next door and bears a striking resemblance to her late mother.

Myriad’s slate at Cannes includes “Electric Slide,” “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby,” “The Curse of Downers Grove,” “Weightless” and “The World Made Straight.”
