IFC Films has bought U.S. rights to Matteo Garrone’s fantasy story “Tale of Tales,” starring Salma Hayek.
“Tale of Tales,” Garrone’s first English-language film, premiered in competition at the Cannes Film Festival. Peter Debruge of Variety gave the film a strong review, calling it a “lavishly realized and long-overdue adaptation.”
The Rest of The Cast Includes:
Vincent Cassel, John C. Reilly, Toby Jones, Shirley Henderson, Hayley Carmichael, Bebe Cave and Alba Rohrwacher.
Jeremy Thomas, Jean Labadie, Ugo Chiti, Massimo Gaudioso and Garrone.
The film is inspired by the fairytales by Giambattista Basile, centering on the rulers of three neighboring kingdoms put to the test when magic enters the picture. Hayek plays a happy queen who is living unhappily until an ominous figure offers a dangerous bargain.
The deal was negotiated by Arianna Bocco from Sundance Selects/IFC Films with Thorsten Schumacher at Hanway Films on behalf of the filmmakers.

Salma’s next project this year, Matteo Garrone’s The Tale of Tales has her feasting on the heart of a beast. To us it looks totally crazy in the best of ways. So trust us you haven’t seen a trailer like this before!
Its loosely based on stories from Giambattista Basile’s 17th-century fairytale collection. The fantasy film also stars Vincent Cassel, Toby Jones, and John C. Reilly.
The film weaves realistic and fantastical elements together into three different story lines, one of which involves a giant beast.
(Warning must age verify on Youtube, there is mature content in the trailer.)
