Transmedia picks up high-profile titles
LONDON -- Startup British indie distributor Transmedia Pictures said Monday it has picked up all U.K. and Ireland rights to a pair of high-profile titles for its fledgling theatrical distribution arm including the Juliette Binoche starrer A Few Days In September, directed by Santiago Amigorena. Established by chairman and CEO Simon Caplan less than two years ago, Transmedia also has secured all U.K. and Ireland rights to Anthony Byrne's feature writing and directorial debut Short Order, which Caplan says will be released under the title Life Is a Buffet. Caplan secured the rights to September from French production and sales house Gemini Films, and says he plans to roll it out across the U.K. "early next year." The Weinstein Co. has U.S. rights to the picture that also stars Nick Nolte and John Turturro and details the story of a rogue CIA agent trying to protect his son and estranged daughter.

She says, "I was able to understand that you can never really retire as a secret agent, because you will always have secrets. I think an actor needs a certain realism and truth to be real on the screen."
