IM Global has reported a strong response to the comedy-musical Walking On Sunshine with Kylie Minogue and Gemma Arterton attached to star.

Kylie Minogue and Gemma Arterton are set to star in the 3D 1980s-fueled musical Walking on Sunshine for the UK’s Vertigo Films.

CEO Stuart Ford and president of international sales Jonathan Deckter have closed deals in: Germany (Square One), Italy (Eagle), Japan (Gaga), Russia (Paradise/MGN), Scandinavia (Nordisk) and South Korea (Entermode).

IM Global has licensed rights in: Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Czech Republic (Media Pro), Poland (Monolith), Taiwan (Applause), Hong Kong (Golden Scene), Switzerland (Impuls) and the Middle East (Gulf). EIM has taken airline rights.

Producer Vertigo Entertainment holds UK rights and talks are ongoing in other territories.

“Distributors are responding to the film’s irrepressible feel-good factor and 1980s nostalgia,” IM Global CEO Stuart Ford said. “The film also has a terrific international feel and it’s the sort of movie audiences are craving in the current global climate.”

Max Giwa and Dania Pasquini — directors of British indie hit StreetDance 3D and StreetDance 2 — are directing the film.

The Hollywood Reporter says Walking on Sunshine (set to pop hits from the 1980s), “takes place in present-day Spain in a beautiful coastal village. Amanda is getting married to the gorgeous Raf and has invited her sister, Taylor, to the wedding. Unbeknownst to Amanda, however, Raf is Taylor’s ex-holiday flame and the love of her life.”

StreetDance 3D, released in 2010, earned north of $17 million and featured debut performances by Britain’s Got Talent stars George Sampson, Diversity and Flawless. It was a production of Vertigo in association with BBC Films.

IM Global’s slate also includes The Butler, headlining Forest Whitaker; Dead Man Down, starring Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace; Welcome the Punch, starring James McAvoy; and Before Midnight.
