Project will debut at the upcoming American Film Market.
Belgium-based studio nWave Pictures has teamed up with French sales company Charades to help sell its upcoming 3D animated feature The Queen’s Corgi.
The deal gives Charades worldwide rights excluding Benelux, Scandinavia and North America, according to Variety. The company will first present the project — due for release in 2019 — at the American Film Market.
With a budget of more than $20 million, The Queen’s Corgi is being directed by nWave chief Ben Stassen with Vincent Kesteloot. The screenplay is by Rob Sprackling and Johnny Smith.
The movie follows the adventure of Rex, the British monarch’s most beloved dog, who loses track of his mistress and stumbles across a fight club with dogs of all kinds confronting each other.
Stassen’s nWave previously worked with Studiocanal on such features as A Turtle’s Tale: Sammy’s Adventures, The House of Magic, The Wild Life and The Son of Bigfoot.
