Jean Doumanian Productions has appointed HanWay Films to represent worldwide sales and distribution rights for its catalogue.

Titles include David Mamet's The Spanish Prisoner, David Gordon Green's All The Real Girls, and Woody Allen's Don't Drink The Water. The library of titles also includes early roles from Cillian Murphy (Sunburn), Clare Forlani (Into My Heart), Helena Bonham Carter (Women Talking Dirty), and Seinfeld star Jason Alexander's 1999 film Just Looking.

The deal follows on the news earlier this week that HanWay would be representing the prestigious 400-title library of the British Film Institute.

Tim Haslam, HanWay CEO, said: 'Jean has championed and supported a diverse range of exciting new talent; her collection of films is testament to her pedigree of quality. On many occasions Jean has been responsible for giving major roles to fledgling talent who have gone on to establish Hollywood careers.'

Separately, HanWay has hired Charlotte Thorp to become director of worldwide sales for broadcast and TV. She will spearhead the company's sales to digital distribution platforms.

Thorp was previously director of international programme sales at MTV Networks and previously worked for HIT Entertainment.

'Hanway has quickly assembled one of the biggest independent collections. This presents a fantastic opportunity to manage such an important asset portfolio,' she said.

Haslam added: 'Charlotte is a highly experienced video and television sales executive, and has a unique understanding of multi-channel distribution as well as great relationships with broadcasters and distributors. Charlotte's appointment is a key component of our expansion to ensure the film collections we represent are broadly sold into proliferating media channels.'
