Universal’s Home Entertainment Group Takes Intl. Rights to ‘Effie Gray’

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment Content Group has picked up all international rights, except the United Kingdom, to “Effie Gray,” Emma Thompson’s film starring Dakota Fanning.

The acquisition comes just as “Effie Gray,” from production company Sovereign Films and producers Andreas Roald and Donald Rosenfeld, heads toward a U.S. theatrical release from Adopt Films next month. UPHE Content Group will also handle the U.S. domestic ancillary rights to the film.

Co-starring Thompson and a cast that includes Tom Sturridge, Derek Jacobi and Julie Walters, “Effie Gray” is based on the true story of Effie (Fanning) and her marriage to Victorian art critic John Ruskin (played by Greg Wise). Thompson both writes and directs.

“Effie Gray” hits U.S. screens April 3.
