The U.S. rights to Catherine Breillat's "Bluebeard" have been acquired by Strand Releasing for a spring 2010 release.

The film, which is set to screen this weekend at the New York Film Festival, is an interpretation of Charles Perrault's classic fairy tale. It is described as the story of, "a young girl named Catherine who bravely confronts the aristocratic wife killer in a very carnal, intellectual retelling."

"Blubeard," which debuted back in February at the Berlin International Film Festival, was a Flach Film production and CB Films and Arte France served as co-producers. The producers are Jean-Francois Lepetit and Sylvette Frydman.

"Strand has had a very long standing relationship with Pyramide and acquiring great auteur driven product," said Strand's co-president Marcus Hu in a statement. "We're thrilled that we will be handling Breillat's unique take on a famous tale."
