Leading Spanish distributor Wanda Films has picked up theatrical rights for Spain to Francois Ozon's comedy drama Ricky from Le Pacte, following its competition screening at Berlin.
'We believe the film has genuine commercial appeal,' Miguel Morales, head of acquisitions at Wanda Films, told ScreenDaily.
Based on a short story by British writer Rose Tremain, Ricky tells the story of an ordinary couple who give birth to an extraordinary baby which sprouts wings.
Produced by Eurowide Film Production, Foz and Teodora, the film is part gritty working class milieu and part dark Disney tale.
Wanda has also picked up Jerome Salle's thriller Largo Winch and Jean-Jacques Mantello's documentary Oceans 3D: Into The Deep for distribution in Spain.
'All three films will be released at the end of this year from September onwards, but we haven't confirmed dates yet,' Morales concluded.
