High Point Media Group has sold UK TV rights to the BBC for Jim Threapleton's Extraordinary Rendition.

The feature, starrin Andy Serkis and Omar Berdouni, is about an innocent man who is suspected of terrorism.

High Point has also sold the project for Danish TV (Danmarks Radio) and all Benelux rights (FEG).

High Point's Carey Fitzgerald said: 'Extraordinary Rendition is one of those rare films which simply, starkly and effectively compels the audience to think about a wide concern - in this case the human cost of state sanctioned torture - and is gold dust for current affairs savvy state broadcasters. In the meantime we are close to concluding a solid DVD deal for the UK.'
