“Carrie Pilby is a charming, endearing film that we fell for when we saw it in Toronto,” said Paul Davidson, The Orchard’s EVP Film and Television. “Susan has crafted a crowd-pleasing film with a stellar cast led by Bel Powley and we look forward to bringing it to audiences in 2017.”
The deal was negotiated by Danielle DiGiacomo on behalf of The Orchard with ICM Partners and UTA Independent Film Group on behalf of the filmmakers. Johnson is represented by GERSH.
