Par looks to win Michell's 'Love'

21 November 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- Paramount Classics is in negotiations to acquire helmer Roger Michell's big-screen adaptation of Ian McEwan's Enduring Love in a multiterritory pact that includes North America, Latin America and Australia, sources said. The film would mark Michell's return to the Paramount fold following last year's Scott Rudin-produced thriller Changing Lanes, starring Ben Affleck and Samuel L. Jackson. The Love pact is being struck with Pathe International, the London-based sales arm of Pathe Entertainment. Love was one of a handful of Pathe titles that stirred serious buzz at the recent MIFED confab in Milan, with specialty buyers circling. Pathe closed a deal this week with Miramax Films on Shona Auerbach's directorial debut, Dear Frankie, for a slew of territories (HR 11/20). Shot from a screenplay by Joe Penhall, Love stars Daniel Craig and Rhys Ifans in the story of two strangers whose lives become dangerously intertwined after they both witness a tragic accident. Kevin Loader produced through Michell and Loader's Free Range Films shingle. McEwan's novel was originally published by Bantam in 1998. The director's The Mother premiered at the Festival de Cannes this year. Mother's distributor is Sony Pictures Classics. The helmer's credits also include Notting Hill and Titanic Town. »

Miramax Films has inked a deal to acquire Shona Auerbach's directorial debut, Dear Frankie, in a multiterritory pact that includes North and South American rights. The Emily Mortimer starrer was one of the hotter titles screening at the recent MIFED confab through Pathe International, the London-based sales arm of Pathe Entertainment. The mini-major also snapped up distribution rights for Spain, Italy and Australia on the project, which is in postproduction and scheduled for completion in January. Also starring Gerard Butler (Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life) and Jack McElhone (Young Adam), Frankie follows a deaf boy and his mother as they struggle to hide the fact that they've run away from the boy's father. »
