Focus Features Picks Up ‘Brian And Charles’ – Sundance

Focus Aspects has taken world rights to Jim Archer’s characteristic directorial debut Brian and Charles.

They’ll liberate domestically with Popular handling offshore territories.

Film follows Brian, a lonely inventor in rural Wales, who spends his days building quirky, unconventional contraptions that seldom work. Undeterred by his lack of success, Brian attempts his largest project yet. Three days, a washing machine, and lots of spare parts later, he’s invented Charles, an artificially wise robot who learns English from a dictionary and has an obsession with cabbages.

Film4, which developed and co-funded the pic, will hold free TV rights to the film within the United Kingdom. BFI awarded funds from the National Lottery to the project directed and edited by Archer.

David Earl and Chris Hayward wrote and produced by Rupert Majendie for Mr Box Productions.

EPs are Damian Jones (Totally Fabulous The Film, Girl within the Van), Mary Burke for the BFI, and Lauren Darkish and Ollie Madden for Film4.

Diversity first had the news about the acquisition.
