The Wagner/Cuban Company’s Magnolia Pictures announced today that they have acquired US rights to the film “How I Live Now”, starred by Saoirse.
“Grandly scaled, beautifully crafted, with a terrific performance from the always great Saoirse Ronan, HOW I LIVE NOW is equally successful as a tense apocalyptic thriller and a great teenage romance,” said Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles. “We’re very happy to once again be working with Kevin Macdonald, one of the rare filmmaker who excels at both documentary and narrative features.” Magnet is eyeing a fall theatrical release for HOW I LIVE NOW. The deal was negotiated by Magnolia/Magnet SVP of Acquisitions Dori Begley and Director of Acquisitions Peter Van Steemburg with CAA for the filmmakers. Protagonist Pictures is handling international sales. HOW I LIVE NOW is a Film4 and BFI presentation in association with Protagonist Pictures and Entertainment One of a Cowboy Films and Passion Pictures production in association with Prospect Entertainment.
