Music Box Films has acquired all US rights to "Le Weekend," directed by Roger Michell ("Hyde Park on Hudson"). The film stars veteran Brit actor Jim Broadbent, Lindsay Duncan and Jeff Goldblum.

"Le Weekend" is penned by Hanif Kureishi, and centers on a long-married British couple (Broadbent and Duncan) who take a trip to Paris to revitalize their relationship. While there, they run into an old friend (Goldblum) who helps them transform their romance. The film recently wrapped production in Paris. Music Box has plans for a summer 2013 theatrical release.

Broadbent was most recently seen wearing many guises in the Wachowskis' and Tom Tykwer's "Cloud Atlas." He is also readily recognizable to American audiences as Professor Slughorn in the "Harry Potter" films. Duncan is primarily a regular on Brit TV, but US viewers may remember her as Alice's mother in Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland."

Goldblum is currently filming Wes Anderson's "Grand Budapest Hotel," and can also be seen this spring in the 3-D re-release of  "Jurassic Park."
