The UK’s Black And Blue Films has announced an initial 9 picture co-production deal with post company The Mews.

Films in the deal include comedy Strippers Vs Werewolves, which starts shooting next week along with action-packed horror Airborne, comedy Bulla, London gangster thriller Moving Target, Stalker, the directorial debut of actor Martin Kemp and a number of future productions to be announced in Cannes.

The Mews will be investing equity and cash in the upcoming slate. As part of the deal, Black & Blue will be based at The Mews’ offices in Soho, London.

Gareth Mullaney, MD of The Mews said: “Black And Blue are an exciting company with fantastic connections in production and importantly, casting. With our background in post production, the production partnership makes very good sense as both companies will make the most of our respective skills to deliver high quality and commercial films.”

Black And Blue’s MD Jonathan Sothcott said: “These are exciting times at Black And Blue – with Simon Phillips joining the team recently and now our partnership with the Mews we are set to move up to the next level.”

Black & Blue’s latest production, Elfie Hopkins, starring Ray and Jaime Winstone will be screening a promo reel at Cannes.
