Toby Roberts developing US road movie

UK film-maker Toby Roberts, whose short film Spoilt Broth was competing for the Berlin Today Award at the festival, is developing his first feature, a US set roadtrip movie called Four For The Border.

Roberts has written the first draft for the film, which he hopes to shoot next year, on an ambitious £20-30m budget.
 
The story centres around a 13 year old mixed race girl from London who moves to New Mexico with her mother, embarking on an adventure with two local boys and a racehorse.
 
Roberts’ short film Spoilt Broth, about a man who decides to rob a bank before realising that he’s not very good at it, was green-lit through the Berlinale Talent Campus in 2010.
 
The UK writer/director calls his debut feature a “nail-biting, action-adventure comedy for kids and their parents that combines the road-trip comedy of Midnight Run with resonances of Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid.
