Paris-based The Media Faculty and Los Angeles-based Basic Lead are launching The Remakes Market, an inaugural event dedicated to adaptation rights of European films, books, and television properties.

The market will run in Los Angeles from November 29-December 1 and organisers expect around 50 rights holders to attend with 100 properties.

The Remakes Market general managers Patrick Jucaud and Laurent Chouraqui said: “Considering the number of remakes made over the years, it seems legitimate to dedicate one specific business event to the sale and acquisition of international film, TV and book adaptation rights. We are very excited by this new challenge and feel that the timing is right for such a focused industry gathering.”
