SCREEN DAILY: Blue Fox acquires Stephen Fry, Daisy Ridley, Marion Cotillard Annecy animation ‘The Inventor’
July 10, 2023
Blue Fox Entertainment has acquired US rights to animated comedy adventure and Annecy selection The Inventor featuring a voice cast led by Stephen Fry, Daisy Ridley, Marion Cotillard, Gauthier Battoue, and Matt Berry.
Directed by Oscar-nominated Ratatouille co-screenwriter Jim Capobianco in his feature debut, the stop-motion feature tells the story of Leonardo da Vinci (voiced by Fry) as he leaves Italy to join the French court where he can experiment, invent flying contraptions and other machines, and study the human body.
Joined in his adventure by the audacious Princess Marguerite (Ridley), da Vinci attempts to uncover the answer to the ultimate question: “What is the meaning of life?”
