Solo Film has bought German rights to two films from MDP Worldwide - 11:14 starring Hilary Swank and The United States Of Leland produced by and starring Kevin Spacey. The deals were negotiated by Mark Damon of MDP with Peter Heinzemann and Marcus Shofer of Solo Film.
Cannes is the third market for Solo which is run by former Kinowelt distribution chief Heinzemann and has so far bought 12 films including Femme Fatale and Moonlight Mile. Later this year Solo will open a German animation picture called Til Eulenspiegel.
'The script to 11:14 is brilliant,' said Heinzemann. 'We are convinced that this film will be a big success in Germany through all stages of release from theatrical to DVD through to TV.'
