Focus Features has picked up the North America rights to the romantic drama A Little Chaos financed by Lionsgate UK. Co-written and directed by Alan Rickman (best known to millions of Muggles as ‘Snape’ in the Harry Potter franchise), A Little Chaos stars Rickman, Kate Winslet, Matthias Schoenaerts, Stanley Tucci, and Danny Webb. The film had its world premiere at this year’s Toronto Film Festival and moviegoers can expect to see A Little Chaos in theaters on March 27, 2015.
“We are pleased to be in business with Alan Rickman and this sterling cast on such a crowd-pleasing movie. A Little Chaos is a great addition to Focus Features’ 2015 slate,” Focus Features CEO Peter Schlessel said announcing the acquisition.
And filmmaker/actor Rickman said, “I’m very proud of the fact that A Little Chaos found its North American home during its World Premiere at TIFF. It’s encouraging to see that the film resonated with both audiences and the industry in Toronto, and I’m excited for its release next spring.”
A Little Chaos follows Sabine (Winslet), a strong-willed landscape designer who challenges sexual and class barriers when she is chosen to build one of the main gardens at King Louis XIV’s new palace at Versailles, causing her to become professionally and romantically entangled with the court’s renowned landscape architect André Le Notre (Schoenaerts).
