UK distributor Arrow Films has acquired Susanne Bier’s upcoming romantic comedy LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED from TrustNordisk.
The deal was negotiated between Tom Stewart, Head of Acquisitions at Arrow Films, and Susan Wendt, Head of Sales at TrustNordisk.
“Arrow Films are thrilled to have Susanne Bier’s next film, feeling assured from the wonderful screenplay that the film has true breakout potential and of course it’s wonderful to strengthen our already excellent relationship with everyone at TrustNordisk,” says Tom Stewart.
Susan Wendt adds:
“We are very happy that Arrow Films will be releasing LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED. They are such a dedicated and enthusiastic team and I am more than sure that they will do a great job for the film.”
During Cannes Film Festival TrustNordisk also closed deals on the title for Turkey (Euromedia LLC.), India (Picture Works), Mexico (Cine Video) and Middle East (Falcon Films) which means that LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED is now officially sold out throughout the world three months ahead of its domestic release.
Starring Pierce Brosnan, Trine Dyrholm and Paprika Steen, LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED is a romantic comedy set in Sorrento, Italy. It’s a story about a group of people all seeking love, about passion and happiness, about jealousy and loneliness. First and foremost, it’s a story about having the courage to change your life – even when you think it’s too late.
LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED is directed by Susanne Bier, written by Anders Thomas Jensen and produced by Sisse Graum Jørgensen and Vibeke Windeløv for Zentropa Entertainments 29 in co-production with Lumiere & Co., Slot Machine, Zentropa International France, Film i Väst, Zentropa International Berlin, Zentropa International Sweden, Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR), Swedish Television, Arte France Cinéma, Network Movie, ZDF, Arte, Longride and with support from The Danish Filminstitute, The Swedish Film Institute, Eurimages, Nordisk Film & TV-Fond, Canal +, Ciné +, RAI Cinema and the MEDIA Programme of the European Union.
