Endemol Shine Poland’s non-English-language scripted movie How to Marry a Millionaire, an adaptation of the format Ellis in Glamourland, is set to hit theaters later this year.
Due for release in theatres across Poland on November 29, the 100-minute How to Marry a Millionaire will be known locally as Jak Poślubić Milionera and produced by Endemol Shine Poland for Polsat. The romantic comedy is written by Karolina Szymczyk-Majchrzak and directed by Filip Zylber and will be distributed locally by Dystrybucja Mówi Serwis.
A comedic guide for all those who dream of meeting “The One,” the film follows the main character Alicja (Małgorzata Socha), who’s been single for the last ten years. Instead of waiting for fate to send her the love she wants, she seeks it out and enrolls in a course to find the perfect partner. The curriculum teaches Alicja how to date, and it just might teach her and the other participants how to enthrall a millionaire as well.
The movie is an adaptation of Ellis in Glamourland from NL Film—part of Endemol Shine Netherlands—which was released in 2004 and starred Joan Collins. Alongside Socha, the movie will star Michał Malinowski, Anita Sokołowska, Małgorzata Foremniak, Iwo Rajski, Piotr Polk, Wojciech Mecwaldowski and Mikołaj Roznerski, among others.
Lars Blomgren, head of scripted for EMEA at Endemol Shine Group, said: “Ellis in Glamourland is a fun and cheeky look at the values of modern-day dating which we’re sure cinema-goers will delight in. The scripted team at Endemol Shine Poland have had a sensational start to the year with the success of Our Century and we can’t wait to add Ellis in Glamourland to the mix and grow the slate further.”
