Millennium Entertainment closed a U.S. rights deal on the Michael Radford-directed Elsa & Fred, starring Shirley MacLaine and Christopher Plummer. Radford wrote it with Anna Pavigano, and Marcia Gay Harden, Chris Noth, Jared Gilman and Scott Bakula also star. Matthias Ehrenberg, Nicolas Veinberg, Jose Levy, Ricardo Kleinbaum from Cuatro Plus Films and Edward Saxon produce. Pic is a remake of the 2005 Spanish/Argentinian film the story of two people in the twilight of their lives who discover that it’s never too late to find love and make their dreams come true. After losing his wife, straight-laced Fred (Plummer) is forced by his daughter (Harden) to move into a small apartment where he meets Elsa. From that moment on, everything changes.
