"Piccolo, Saxo and Company" Marching to U.S Under Weinstein



The Weinstein Co. has obtained rights to distribute French animated musical "Piccolo, Saxo, and Company" in North America regions.

Set to bring back the animated musical euphoria in theaters, The Weinstein Co. has delightfully picked up North American rights to a French animated picture titled "Piccolo, Saxo and Company" to distribute it after making the English language version with new actors.

Inspired from 'Space-age pop' musician Andre Popp's album "Les Aventures de Piccolo Saxo", the Marco Villamizar's tale tells about a group of instruments which decide to form their own symphony orchestra. It has already been revealed that the flick will open next month in France and other European countries.

Founded by brothers Harvey and Bob Weinstein, The Weinstein Co. was established in 2005 following their departure from Disney-owned Miramax Films which they had co-founded in 1979. Apart from "Piccolo", the studio also has just secured the distribution rights to Wong Kar Wai's "My Blueberry Nights" which is currently in post-production status.
