Strand Releasing has acquired all US rights to Philippe Le Guay’s comedy Cycling With Moliere.

Fabrice Luchini plays renowned actor Serge Tanneur who chooses to become a hermit in a small coastal town in France and is pursued for a role in Moliere’s classic play The Misanthrope.

Strand plans a spring 2014 release on the film, which also stars Lambert Wilson, Maya Sansa, Camille Japy and Ged Marlon.

Jon Gerrans of Strand Releasing brokered the deal with Saya Huddleston of Pathe International.

Strand Releasing previously released Le Guay’s comedy The Women On The Sixth Floor which also starred Luchini.
