Before its Toronto Film Fest unveiling Tuesday, North American rights to Mike Newell's "Great Expectations" have gone to new La/NY private equity fund Outsource Media Group. Ralph Fiennes, Helena Bonham Carter, Jeremy Irvine, and Holliday Grainger star in this latest version of the Dickens classic. Outsource Media Group will handle P & A on the film and will now look for distribution partners for this film and its upcoming slate of pre-buys and acquisitions.
