Acquires worldwide rights to French pic

European TV giant CLT-Ufa has acquired worldwide distribution rights to the $4.5 million French thriller-comedy “Like a Fish Out of Water.”

The acquisition marks a further advance in the cautious expansion of CLT-Ufa’s international distribution arm CLT-Ufa Intl. into film co-financing and international distribution.

“We are expanding pretty quickly in international distribution and building toward a strong slate. But we will move step by step. There’s no hurry” says Heinz Thym, head of international acquisitions and sales at CLT-Ufa Intl.

“Like a Fish Out of Water,” produced by Stephane Tavenas at France’s Horizon Prods. (“Barracuda”), is only the third project CLT-Ufa Intl. has acquired worldwide rights to in its two years.

The French-language film marks the directorial debut of commercials director Herve Hadmar. Its cast is headed by Tcheky Karyo (“Addicted to Love,” “Nikita”), Monica Belluci (“Bram Stoker’s Dracula”) and Dominique Pinon (“Delicatessen”).
