Screen Media has acquired North American rights to Michael Swan’s live-action family adventure White Lion.
The film shot outside Johannesburg and tells of a rare white lion cub that rises above many challenges to become one of the most powerful predators in Africa.
The celebrated “lion whisperer” Kevin Richardson also served as a producer. Screen Media will partner with local zoos in the US.
Screen Media president Robert Baruc and David Fannon negotiated the deal with Scott Bedno and David Jackson at Showcase Entertainment.
