Hachette Filipacchi Films (HFF), the company formerly known as Film Office, has acquired French rights to Miguel Arteta's US hit The Good Girl from Myriad Pictures. The deal was sealed at the Deauville Festival Of American Film where the film received its international premiere.
Mars Film will release the film theatrically in France, with HFF handling the video release through its distribution agreement with Paramount in France.
"In the difficult distribution climate which exists in France at the moment, we could not have found better partners to release our film in France than Hachette's Franck Ribiere and Mars' Stephane Celerier," said Myriad's executive vice president of sales and distribution Eric Christenson, who sealed the deal. "We have been searching for the right distribution arrangement, and Franck and Stephane's passion for this film and excellent release strategy made this decision easy."
Myriad closed other deals on the movie which stars Jennifer Aniston and Jake Gyllenhaal with Fox Searchlight Pictures for Latin America, Australasia, the UK and South Africa, with Paramount Pictures for Japan and Italy, with Filmax in Spain and with Egmont in Scandinavia.
