Magnolia Takes US Rights to Rob Reiner’s THE MAGIC OF BELLE ISLE

HollywoodNews.com: The Wagner/Cuban Company’s Magnolia Pictures announced today they have acquired US rights to THE MAGIC OF BELLE ISLE, a warmly funny drama directed by Rob Reiner, starring Morgan Freeman, Virginia Madsen, Madeline Carroll, Kenan Thompson, and Fred Willard. The film was written by Guy Thomas, and produced by Alan Greisman, Lori McCreary, Salli Newman and David Valdes.

Reuniting with his director from the hit film, The Bucket List, Freeman plays Monte Wildhorn, a famous Western novelist whose struggle with alcoholism has

sapped his passion for writing. He takes a lakeside cabin for the summer in picturesque Belle Isle, and befriends the family next door?an attractive single mom (Madsen) and her young daughters?who help him find inspiration again.

Magnolia plans a theatrical and VOD release in its Ultra VOD program in the summer.

‘We’re thrilled to get the chance to work with Rob Reiner on THE MAGIC OF BELLE ISLE,’ said Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles. ‘It’s a real pleasure to watch this stellar cast at the top of their game.’
