Sony acquires ‘St. Trinian’s’

U.K. hit comedy sets U.S. video and TV terms

Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group has acquired U.S. video and TV rights to the U.K. hit comedy “St. Trinian’s” from independent theatrical distributor and foreign sales agent NeoClassics Films.

NeoClassics, which acquired U.S. rights to “St. Trinian’s” from Ealing Studios, will distribute the film theatrically in the U.S. this summer.

The remake of the 1950s Ealing classic “The Belles of St. Trinian’s” grossed more than $25 million in its U.K. theatrical run.

Directed by Oliver Parker and Barnaby Thompson and starring Colin Firth and Rupert Everett, “St. Trinian’s” tells the twisted story of a dysfunctional British girls’ boarding school and its equally twisted parents, teachers and administrators.

Rounding out the cast are Russell Brand, Gemma Arterton, Lena Headey, Caterina Murino and Stephen Fry.

Ealing Studios is set to produce a sequel this summer, “St. Trinian’s II: The Legend of Fritton’s Gold.”
