The Weinstein Co. bought the rights to nature documentary, The Besieged Fortress.

The movie, written and directed by Phillippe Calderon, centers on termites whose African habitat is threatened by a storm and subsequent ant invaders; Variety describes it as a "wildlife documentary shot like a true disaster movie." It will be redone for Stateside release with English voiceovers like March of the Penguins.

No U.S. release date has been set for The Besieged Fortress; it hits theaters later this month in France.
