Edward Noeltner's Cinema Management Group (CMG) has acquired worldwide sales rights to Renavatio Productions' Drug Wars.

Gary A Fleming Jr's documentary explores the world of Mexican drug cartels and features first-hand accounts from victims, law enforcement officers, border patrol guards and former FBI agents.

Noeltner brokered the deal with producer's rep Page Ostrow on behalf of Renavatio Productions.

CMG's slate includes the documentary The People Speak, which Noeltner introduced at EFM in Berlin, as well as Marleen Gorris' upcoming $15m drama Heaven And Earth about James Miranda Barry, the 19th century female military surgeon who pretended to be a man in order to serve.
