StudioCanal Thrills with Serena Sales

Article excerpt

Pan-European powerhouse StudioCanal is reporting an "incredible response" to Serena, its $25 million thriller/romance starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper.

The film's director Susanne Bier made a whistlestop trip to Berlin at the weekend to meet leading foreign buyers. "She (Bier) was very convincing in selling a modern Gone With The Wind and that is really what we are going for, a very passionate, epic-scale love story," commented Harold Van Lier, Executive Vice President International Distribution.

On the back of Bier's visit and the new draft of script, deals have now been closed with eOne (Canada) and Nordisk (Scandinavia).

StudioCanal, which is releasing the film itself in France, Germany and the UK, is closing in on several other major deals with territories including Spain and Germany and expects to close "a large majority of the available world" here in Berlin.
