Picturehouse has acquired the U.S. rights to "The Fox & the Child," the first narrative film from the team that created the box-office hit "The March of the Penguins," Bob Berney, president of Picturehouse announced Monday. The film is directed by Luc Jacquet and produced by Yves Darondeau, Christophe Lioud and Emmanuel Priou. Picturehouse by SVP of acquisitions, Sara Rose and Carolyn Blackwood, EVP of business affairs and co-productions, New Line brokered the deal for the company. Based on Jacquet's own experience as a child, the film tells the story of "a little girl who enters the familiar landscape of the forest surrounding her home but, by following in the fox's footsteps, an entire new world is revealed to her." "We are tremendously pleased to be a part of 'The Fox & the Child,'" said Berney in a statement. "It's a universal story that will touch people of all ages. I know that Luc and his team will bring their incredible passion to this project and capture images we never thought possible." [Brian Brooks]
