AV Pictures has announced that it is handling worldwide sales on William Spicer & James Moore’s Mission To Lars.

Spicer & Moore’s documentary follows two siblings’ attempt to fulfil their brother Tom’s dream of meeting Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich. AV Pictures will launch the project in Toronto, where they also have CWC entry Jump on their slate.

Caroline Couret-Delègue, AV Pictures’ Sales & Acquisitions Director, commented: “We were all profoundly moved by Tom’s story and are proud to be representing such an uplifting real-life feature.”

“We needed a sales agent that could match this passion,” Spicer added. “Finally, we have everything we have hoped for. With AV Pictures we have found a partner who can harness the huge underground interest and demand in Mission to Lars and take it around the world to the wider audience our film deserves.”

Mission To Lars received a limited UK theatrical release in June, with selected cinemas holding charity screening events in aid of Mencap.
