French distributor takes rights for France and French-speaking Europe to Paul Andrew Williams’ third feature.

Paris-based Haut et Court has snapped up Paul Andrew Williams’ thriller Cherry Tree Lane for France and French-speaking Europe from sales company Salt.

Cherry Tree Lane, Williams’ third feature after London To Brighton and The Cottage, takes place in real time over the course of an evening. The home of an average couple is invaded by a gang of youths, who have come to kill their son as payback for snitching on one of them, who is now in prison as a result.

Ken Marshall, Williams’ partner in Steel Mill Pictures, is producing and it will be released in the UK by Metrodome later in the year.

The film is financed by the UK Film Council and post-production/financing/producing facility Molinare.
