Company will start selling the family adventure at EFM.

Global Screen has acquired worldwide distribution rights to The Legend of Longwood.

Lisa Mulcahy’s English language family adventure centres on a 12-year-old girl who is destined to break a 300 year old spell cast on a small Irish town and its villagers.

The Dutch-Irish-German production stars newcomer Lucy Morton and Lorçan Bonner, alongside Lorcan Cranitch, Thekla Reuten, Fiona Glascott, Sean Mahon and Miriam Margolyes.

Holland Harbour, Grand Pictures and Longwood Pictures produced the film, which shot in Wicklow County, Ireland and Germany last year.

Julia Weber, head of sales at Global Screen, commented: “The Legend of Lockwood has all the ingredients for a hit feature: beautiful horses, a magical world, adventure and a strong female hero to attract the kids, mystic settings, history, aristocracy, weddings and romance for the adults, and fanciful themes like magic, malediction, chivalry and black knights.”
