In an innovative three-way play, THINKFilm, Lifetime Networks and Netflix's Red Envelope Entertainment have jointly acquired North American rights to Daniel Barnz's Phoebe In Wonderland.

THINKFilm will release the drama in exclusive engagements this autumn, while Lifetime takes exclusive television rights and Red Envelope holds non-exclusive DVD and streaming rights.

All three companies will pool their resources to brand and market the film, which premiered at Sundance in January and tells of an eccentric girl whose life begins to mirror that of the lead character in the school play, Alice In Wonderland.

Elle Fanning, Patricia Clarkson, Felicity Huffman, Bill Pullman, and Campbell Scott star. Barnz wrote the screenplay, Ben Barnz and Lynette Howell produced and Doug Dey and Chris Finazzo served as executive producers.

THINKFilm's theatrical division head Mark Urman negotiated the deal with Lifetime's president of entertainment Susanne Daniels and head of Red Envelope Liesl Copland.

Graham Taylor from Endeavor Independent and UTA's Rich Klubeck negotiated on behalf of the film-makers with THINKFilm's Urman and vice president of business and legal affairs Richard Rapkowski, Lifetime's senior vice president of business affairs and deputy general counsel Jeffrey Scheider and Red Envelope's head of business affairs Thom Zadra.

Nicolas Chartier of Voltage Pictures is handling international sales.
