This the story of four young Brits who – after the Sex Pistols’ legendary TV appearance in 1976 – take off from four different corners of the country on a quest to reach the band’s “Anarchy in the UK” concert in Norwich and then follow their legendary UK tour across England.
British platinum-selling recording artist Paloma Faith plays one of the four main roles in this road movie. Filming will begin later in the autumn on the film, produced by Wellington Films and Zentropa Sweden.
PTI is also handling sales on Jacques Ouaniche’s historical drama Young Perez [pictured]. The film, now in post production, is based on the true story of two-time boxing World Champion Victor Perez.
The youngest champion in the history of boxing, Perez was deported to Auschwitz in 1943, where he was forced to take part in brutal boxing matches for the entertainment of the guards. He was shot in 1945 during the death march that followed the dissolution of the camp. Perez is played by French-Algerian actor Brahim Asloum, himself a former professional boxing champ. The ensemble also includes Bruce Payne and Isabella Orsini.
Here in Cannes, PTI has been confirmed as the German co-production partner and international distributor for the project Human from Iron Sky producer Tero Kaukomaa and Canadian producers Dean English and Karen Powell.
Horror movie Human is the first project to implement PTI’s integrated sales & production business model with its strategic partners Blind Spot Pictures (Finland) and Perfect Circle Productions (Canada).
Also new on the PTI Cannes slate is Andrew Wessels’ South African comedy Blitz Patrollie. The film stars David Kau and Joe Rasdien, who play Johannesburg policemen accidentally ensnared in a major drug deal.
