Focus World has picked up domestic rights to the Diane Keaton-Morgan Freeman pic Ruth & Alex following its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival. Directed by Richard Loncraine (Wimbledon, My One And Only) from a script by Charlie Peters, the adaptation of Jill Ciment’s Heroic Measures also stars Cynthia Nixon in the story of a NYC couple (Keaton and Freeman) deciding whether to sell their longtime Brooklyn home.
Focus World, the alternative distribution arm of Focus Features, will release the film, and Myriad Pictures continues to sell international rights. Anjay Nagpal negotiated the deal for Focus World with WME Global and CAA on behalf of the filmmakers.
