eOne nabs ‘Paris Manhattan’

Sophie Lellouche pic stars Alice Taglioni, Patrick Bruel

TORONTO — Entertainment One has nabbed North American rights to romantic comedy “Paris Manhattan,” it announced Tuesday.

French helmer Sophie Lellouche’s feature bow stars Alice Taglioni (“The Valet”) as a Woody Allen-obsessed pharmacist and Patrick Bruel (“A Secret”) as one of her suitors. Allen appears in the film as himself.

The deal was negotiated by eOne worldwide acquisitions manager Jo Sweby and SND’s head of sales Charlotte Boucon. Pic will open in the U.S. and Canada this year.

Last fall, Toronto-based eOne upped its commitment to theatrical distribution in the U.S., recently acquiring “Jesus Henry Christ,” “Wish You Were Here” and “Special Forces” among other titles.

“We’re in constant search of great films with top talent, such as ‘Paris Manhattan,’ as we continue to build a strong portfolio for North America,” said Dylan Wiley, eOne Films’ U.S. VP of theatrical marketing and distribution.
