Ed Noeltner’s Cinema Management Group (CMG) has licensed Canadian 3D animated adventure The Legend Of Sarila to Luxor for Russia, Telepool for Germany and 5 Star Pictures for Israel.
CMG has also closed deals with Front Row for the Middle East, Associated Euromedia for Turkey, Talent Epitome for China and Jonon Source for Mongolia.
Bayard Canada will publish a picture book and a novel for younger readers based on the Inuit quest story.
Nancy Florence Savard of 10th Ave Productions directs from a screenplay by Pierre Tremblay and Roger Harvey and the voice cast includes Christopher Plummer, Genevieve Bujold and singer Elisapie Isaac.
Savard produced with CarpeDiem’s Marie-Claude Beauchamp, Paul Risacher and Normand Thauvette.
“We had a great experience working with the team at Luxor on our Khumba deal and they were thrilled with the amazing new 3D footage from The Legend Of Sarila,” said Noeltner.
“When Luxor, Telepool and 5 Star Pictures heard our marketing campaign for 2013 and saw some of the publishing deals the people at Sarila have put together, they all told us they wanted to be involved with this wonderful family adventure.”
