UK-based sales outfit Phoenix Worldwide has acquired Imelda –The Twelve Scores Of A Grumpy Grandma for international sales, from Canadian filmmaker Martin Villeneuve.

The French-language title is produced by Villeneuve and Benoit Beaulieu, and also stars Villeneuve, Ginette Reno and Robert Lepage.

Villeneuve – the brother of Dune director Denis Villeneuve – has spent 10 years making the comedy drama, that is based on the life of the director’s grandmother as she approaches her 100th birthday.

It was distributed last year in Canada by Maison 4:3 under the title The 12 Tasks Of Imelda.

The director’s previous credits include Karlovy Vary premiere Mars & April.
