EXCLUSIVE: Bill Johnson’s IF Entertainment arrives at its first AFM with the action adventure The Last Knights.
Japan’s Kazuaki Kiriya will direct from a screenplay by Barney’s Version writer Michael Konyves.
Luka Production International’s Luci Kim is producing and Route One Film’s Jay Stern, Russell Levine and Chip Diggins serve as executive producers.
The Last Knights centres on a band of warriors who seek to avenge the loss of their master at the hands of a corrupt emperor.
The producers are targeting an early November start in the Czech Republic.
Since its formation earlier this year, IF has arranged financing and handled international sales on Steve Jobs biopic Jobs starring Ashton Kutcher, which is in post, and Olivier Dahan’s Grace, which stars Nicole Kidman and is currently shooting in Monaco.
Inferno Distribution will provide marketing and servicing assistance on select IF Entertainment projects pursuant to a services agreement.
