Mongrel Media has acquired all Canadian rights to The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window and Disappeared.

Felix Herngren’s (pictured) adaptation of Jonas Jonasson’s bsetselling novel opened top in Sweden on December 25 and earned $11.4m in its first 12 days. It ranked as the number three film in Norway and Denmark.

The film tells of a healthy centenarian who decides it not too late to start over. Robert Gustafsson stars.

Mongrel Media – in its 20th anniversary year – negotiated rights with Studiocanal and plans a summer release.
