Afm: Picture Tree Grows Pacts for Paulo Coehlo’s Biopic ‘Pilgrim’

9 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Berlin-based Picture Tree has scored a raft of deals on Paulo Coehlo’s biopic “The Pilgrim — the Best Story of Paulo Coelho.”

The pic, which was penned by Carolina Kotscho (“2 Sons of Francisco”) and helmed by docu filmmaker Daniel Augusto (“Amazonia Desconhecida”), sold to South Korea (Micon), Poland (Kino Swiat), Czech Republic (Cinemart), Hungary (Anjou Lavayette), Former Yugoslavia (2i Film) and Cis/Baltics (Luxor Entertainment).

Coelho’s 30 novels — including “The Alchemist” and “Adultery” — have been translated into 80 languages, distributed in 224 countries and sold more than 165 million copies.

“The Pilgrim” retraces Coelho’s own story, which was the chief inspiration for his work. He flirted with death, escaped madness, experimented with drugs, overcame torture, made rock-and-roll history in Brazil, and found fame as a writer.

“The Pilgrim” is produced by Sao Paulo-based company Dama Filmes, and Spain’s Babel Films.

Picture Tree is now closing Spain, Italy, Turkey, Taiwan and France »

Meet Brenton Thwaites, the Star of The Giver and Your New Crush

13 August 2014 3:05 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The Giver opens this week, and that means it's time to familiarize yourself with the star of the big-screen adaptation. Brenton Thwaites plays Jonas, the young hero of Lois Lowry's famous novel, opposite Jeff Bridges. If you haven't heard of him, you probably didn't catch his run on the Australian soap Home and Away - the same show on which Chris Hemsworth, Isla Fisher, and Guy Pearce got their big breaks. He also turned up in Maleficent this year as Prince Phillip, but when we caught up with him recently, we really just wanted some intel on The Giver. Don't be jealous, but he totally jammed out with The Dude. Popsugar: Did you have any hesitation signing up for an adaptation of such a beloved book? Brenton Thwaites: No, my only concern in the beginning was my age. We worked that out by aging Jonas up a bit from the book. »
