Global Road buys distribution rights to Colin Firth-led ‘Secret Garden’ adaptation

By Kendra Cleary | Edited by Karen Rought

Thanks to Global Road Entertainment, North American fans will be able to see the adaptation of the beloved novel, starring Colin Firth.

Variety reports that the studio has officially acquired the rights to distribute the project in North America. Chairman and CEO of Global Road, Rob Friedman, expressed his excitement about the acquisition: “The Secret Garden is one of the world’s most beloved stories of all time celebrating friendship, nature and the limitless power of childhood imagination.”

The script for the project was written by Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child), and is being produced by another Potter alum, David Heyman. The Secret Garden began filming last week, with Colin Firth and Julie Walters in starring roles.

With all of the shocking TV cancellations that are occurring this week, it’s good to have a special project like this to look forward to!
