Beyond Films has signed up to handle international sales on 3 Blind Mice, starring Edward Furlong and Sharleen Spiteri, the lead singer of rock group Texas.
The cyber thriller is slated to begin shooting in the UK during January 2002, with France's Mathias Ledoux directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Mikael Ollivier. Producing chores are shared by Guillaume Godard, Carolyn Caldera and Jean-Luc De Fanti, while Canal Plus has French pay-TV rights.
Furlong's character witnesses a murder live on the web and is drawn into an investigation led by former hacker-turned-cyber-detective Claire, played by Spiteri.
The project is a co-production between France's Kcraft & Co and Les Films Caldera - De Fanti, along with the UK's Une Souris Verte.
