Radius – The Weinstein Company has secured US rights for the latest foreign werewolf import from Jonas Alexander Arnby, When Animals Dream. Read on for details and more regarding this flick, which is described as Let rhe Right One In meets Carrie.
Repped by French major Gaumont, the visually stunning genre pic was also acquired by Madman for Australia, Altitude Film for the UK, Prokino for Germany, and Odeon for Greece during the currently running European Film Market.
“It’s extremely hard these days to find a groundbreaking genre film, but When Animals Dream is that rare gem indeed. I haven’t been excited in Berlin since buying Let the Right One In,” said Tom Quinn, president of Radius-TWC.
“I’m so excited to see the ‘Wolf Pack’ back and be a part of it,” said Gaget, adding that she sold the US remake rights to Nicolas Winding Refn’s Pusher to Radius-TWC shortly after its launch two years ago.

Marie is a beautiful and lonely 16-year-old who lives in an isolated village on a small island off the west coast of Denmark. Marie’s mother is seriously ill, suffering from an unknown disease – on medication, mentally absent, and tied to a wheelchair. Marie’s father, Thor, runs the small grocery store and tries to make life as normal as possible for the small family. On the surface, everything seems fine – and yet, Marie can’t help feeling that Thor is hiding something about her mother’s illness.
