Berlin -- Pathe International has closed a string of deals at the European Film Market on its market titles, with more pending on its festival entries, the company said Sunday.
Neil Marshall's "Centurion" has presold to Constantin in Germany, Aurum in Spain, Hopscotch in Australia, Scanbox in Scandinavia and Odeon in Greece. The ancient Britain-set actioner, which stars Michael Fassbender, will start principal photography later this month in Scotland.
Pathe also sealed deals on "Lol (Laughing Out Loud)," directed by Liza Azuelos, with Mediaset in Italy, Maywin for the Cis, Delphi in Germany and Alta in Spain. The film opened in France last week on 430 screens, grossing 550,000 euros in its first two days, the highest per-screen average of the top 10 films.
Alta also has picked up Mona Achache's "The Elegance of the Hedgehog" from Pathe, with a German deal expected to be in place before the end of the market.
