Kino Lorber has picked up all US rights from Pathé International to Daniel Auteuil’s latest two features, Marius and Fanny. Separately, Music Box has acquired the French supernatural mini-series The Returned.

Both Marius and Fanny are part of Auteuil’s remake project tackling the works of writer-director Marcel Pagnol. Kino Lorber previously released The Well-Digger’s Daughter by Auteuil in 2011.

Kino Lorber will release both films in early 2014, following the theatrical, home video and digital plan established for The Well-Digger’s Daughter.

Music Box Films has acquired all US rights from international distributor Zodiak Rights to the French supernatural mini-series The Returned.

Based on the feature Les Revenants by Robin Campillo, the eight-part drama follows a group of villagers who return home only to find they have been dead for several years.

The Returned epitomises the very best of the crop of outstanding international television productions finding its way onto US screens,” said Music Box Films’ William Schopf. “We couldn’t be more excited about working with Zodiak… to introduce this extraordinary series to American audiences.”

The show will premiere in October followed by VOD and DVD/Blu-Ray release in January 2014.
