US-based MPower International has sold The Stoning Of Soraya M. to Scanbox in Scandinavia, Nu Metro in South Africa and Independent Distributors in Israel.

Middle East distributor Front Row previously acquired the rights to the film starring Shohreh Aghdashloo, Jim Caviezel and Mozhan Marno.

MPower’s film follows a journalist who reveals a conspiracy to cover up the execution of a woman falsely accused of adultery. The film goes on limited US release on June 26.

Middle East distributor Italia Films and South Africa’s Nu Metro have secured rights to MPower’s family film Snowmen starring Ray Liotta and Christopher Lloyd.

Colleen Seldin, former senior vice-president of international distribution and operations at Miramax, is representing Mpower in Cannes and closed the deals with the distributors.
