Harvey Ent. grabs Pearson’s ‘Monkey’

Hollywood fest toon topper to get 2001 release

Harvey Entertainment Co. has acquired all U.S. rights to Pearson Television Intl.’s animated children’s film “A Monkey’s Tale.”

Pic, which received best animated film award at the Hollywood Film Festival last week, is slated for an early 2001 U.S. theatrical release. Video will go out through Harvey’s output arrangement with Universal Home Video.

Monkey business

With vocal talent provided by John Hurt, Michael York, Rik Mayall and Michael Gambon, “Tale” tells the story of two monkey tribes that have grown to hate each other until a rebellious teen primate refuses to believe what he is told about the rival group and sets out to see for himself.

The film was penned by Norman Hudis and directed by Jean-Francois Laguionie.

The toon pic was produced by Steve Walsh, Patrick Moine and Gerd Hecker with Les Films Du Triangle and Cologne Cartoon in association with Entertainment Rights and France 3 Cinema.
