Label acquires US rights to English-language remake of Nicolas Winding Refn cult hit.
New TWC label Radius-TWC has picked up US (and Caribbean basin) rights to Vertigo-Embargo Pusher revamp from Gaumont.
Luis Prieto directs Richard Coyle, model Agness Deyn and Zlatko Buric in the story of a London drug pusher who grows increasingly desperate over the course of a week after a botched deal leaves him with a large debt to a ruthless drug lord.
The deal was negotiated for Radius-TWC by Quinn and Janego; and by C飩le Gaget, head of Gaumont International, on behalf of the producers.
Rupert Preston of Vertigo Films and Christopher Simon and Felix Vossen of Embargo Films produce. Nicolas Winding Refn is executive producer.
Electro duo Orbital score the film.
Said producer Preston: “Pusher has a vibe, energy and vision that audiences will love. We could think of no better company than Radius/TWC to launch it in the US.”
