‘What Richard Did’ Sold To UK, Australia and Scandinavia
18 Oct 2012 :
'What Richard Did' was released in Ireland earlier this month
Lenny Abrahamson’s latest feature ‘What Richard Did’ has been sold to a number of international distributors following a strong opening in Ireland.

The acclaimed feature has secured deals in Australia, France, Scandinavia and the UK, where it will be released early next year.

Artificial Eye has bought the feature for the UK market; Madman Entertainment for Australia; Zed for France and Angel Films for Scandinavia.

All deals were negotiated by London-based sales agents Protagonist Pictures, except for the UK deal which was handled by Ireland’s Element Distribution. Artificial Eye has scheduled the feature for a January 2012 UK release.

The deals follow a strong opening for the Element Pictures-produced drama which has grossed €165,625 after two weeks on release in Ireland.

‘What Richard Did’ tells the story of a privileged Dublin teenager whose world crumbles after an act of violence. The feature received its UK premiere at the London Film Festival earlier this week and world premiered in Toronto last month. The drama stars young Wicklow actor Jack Reynor alongside Lars Mikkelsen (The Killing).

Protagonist is also handling sales on Abrahamson’s next project ‘Frank’, which will star Michael Fassbender and Domhnall Gleeson.

It was announced yesterday that ‘Frank’ has been offered €1m in funding from the Irish Film Board.
