Weinsteins swoop on Us rights to animation 'Ballerina'

11 May 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Weinstein Company has acquired Us rights to the upcoming animated film Ballerina.

In–demand Elle Fanning, who stars in Nicolas Winding Refn’s Competition entry The Neon Demon, features in the voice cast alongside Maggie Ziegler and Carly Rae Japsen.

She learns from a tough mentor that talent alone is not enough and she must work hard to succeed. Finally she meets her soul mate, an inventor, and together they inspire each other to achieve their dream.

Carole Noble and Laurent Zeitoun wrote the screenplay, and the producers are Nicolas Duval Adassovsky, Yann Zenou, and Laurent Zeitoun  of Quad Productions, Main Journey and Andre Rouleau and Valerie D’Auteuil of Caramel Film.
