H2O Motion Pictures has picked up international rights to Ashley Baron Cohen's black comedy Poor Things starring Shirley MacLaine and Olympia Dukakis.

The Los Angeles-based company has further bolstered its Cannes slate with the drama Feel, which is being directed by music video director Matt Mahurin.

Poor Things, which is currently shooting in Los Angeles, is inspired by real events surrounding the recent arrest and conviction of elderly female members of criminal 'granny gangs'.

MacLaine and Dukakis play septuagenarian con artists who plan a final scam only to encounter a hiccough in the form of a homeless drug addict.

Robert Hickman of Still Rolling Productions is producing. This is Still Rolling Productions' first project; the company aims to make five films over the next three years in the $5-10m range.

H20's Mark Horowitz will introduce the film to buyers at Cannes. ICM represents domestic rights.

Feel stars William Baldwin in the story of four men searching for connection. The Cannes slate also features the black comedy People Who Knock On The Door, romance Crawling At Night, and the drama Opium.
