World Brief

London-based international sales firm the Film Co. will sell all rights and territories to director Ken Russell’s film “The Fall of the Louse of Usher.”

Pic, a campy update of Edgar Allan Poe’s classic horror story “The Fall of the House of Usher,” is lensing in the U.K. using digital media.
