According to The Hollywood Reporter, Picturehouse has acquired North American rights to Guillermo del Toro's fairy tale film Pan's Labyrinth. A fall release is anticipated. Set against the fascist regime in rural Spain, the film stars Ivana Baquero (Fragile) as a lonely girl who creates a world filled with fantastical creatures.
The cast also includes Mirabel Verdu (Y Tu Mama Tambien), Sergi Lopez (Dirty Pretty Things) and Doug Jones (Hellboy).
"This is a stunning film both in its visuals and narrative," Picturehouse president Bob Berney said. "Guillermo is a master filmmaker and the ultimate film fan as well."
