Kristin Scott Thomas’ “Sarah’s Key” acquired by The Weinstein Company

HollywoodNews.com: It was announced today that The Weinstein Company preemptively bought all U.S. rights to “Sarah’s Key” starring Kristin Scott Thomas and based on the New York Times best-selling novel by Tatiana De Rosnay. Directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner, “Sarah’s Key” starts in Paris, 1942, where ten-year old Sarah is taken with her parents by the French police as they go door-to-door arresting Jewish families as part of the Vel’d-Hiv Roundup. Desperate to protect her younger brother, Sarah locks him in a bedroom cupboard – their secret hiding place – and promises to come back for him, but she and her parents are dragged from their home forever. Sixty-seven years later Sarah?s story intertwines with that of Julia Jarmond (Kristen Scott Thomas), an American journalist investigating the roundup. In her research, Julia stumbles onto a trail of secrets that link her to Sarah, and to questions about her own future.

The novel sold over two million copies worldwide and has been translated into 15 languages and published in 22 countries. The film is likely to open theatrically next year.

Comments producer Stéphane Marsil, “When Gilles and I first met with Harvey in Paris about “Sarah’s Key,” we knew immediately that we shared the same passion and emotion about Tatiana’s book, and that a film had to be made.”

Peter Lawson and Michal Steinberg from The Weinstein Company and Grégoire Melin from Kinology negotiated the deal.
