IM Global Pacts With Edgy Brit Producer
EXCLUSIVE: La-based telemarketer IM Global makes a multi-film resolve for take approaching in-house productions from United kingdom distributor Revolver Entertainment. The slate goes through IM Globals Octane genre label. Were searching to produce films that have the possibility to visit worldwide, Revolver Boss Justin Marciano informs me. Gunslinger, Revolvers in-house production arm, has two projects it's pushing forward on: Offender, directed by Ron Scalpello, which the organization is pitching like a Brit version of the Prophet, and Lenny The Guvnor McClean (working title), in line with the true story of the East Finish thug who grew to become Britains most well known bare-knuckle fighter. Revolver has set a summer time 2012 release for Offender, compiled by Paul Van Carter and created by Nick Taussig of Revolver, which informs the storyline of the guy who creates their own jail time to be able to avenge the rape of his girlfriend. Production begins early December. Revolver created Gunslinger in fall 2009, implementing the model Luc Besson used in the past of EuropaCorp: The Brit producer makes low-budget features targeted in an under-offered youth audience, which could get into profit just through their house market. The London Film Festival is screening Gunslingers 3rd production, retribution thriller Sket, before its October 28 United kingdom release. Spoof comedy Anuvahood sent in the craze for low-budget gangsta Brit movies, while Gunslingers first production Shank would be a gang culture thriller. Other Brit movies that IM Global continues to be selling include Madonnas W.E. and Thanks for visiting the Punch, starring James McAvoy.
