Felix Herngren's adaptation of the best-selling novel follows the adventures of an impish centenarian. Swedish comedian Robert Gustafsson stars as the pensioner in question, who escapes from his old folks' home on his 100th birthday.
Danny Perkins, CEO at StudioCanal, said:
"Creative Europe support makes all the difference for certain titles we acquire. It allows us to be more confident while launching them on the UK market, and consequently they reach wider audiences. In an increasingly busy release calendar the risk that distributors are taking with every film is growing. The grants help to mitigate the risk and support us in pursuing more ambitious release strategies."
