Bankside secures key deal following Tribeca world premiere.
Simon Dixon’s mercenary thriller Tiger Raid has been snapped up for the UK and Ireland by Altitude Film Distribution.
Bankside Films closed the deal on the film, which received its world premiere at Tribeca Film Festival and will have its UK premiere at Edinburgh International Film Festival on June 25.
The film centres on two cold-blooded mercenaries, played by Brian Gleeson and Damien Molony, who are on a mission in Iraq to kidnap a woman, played by Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service). But her abduction leads to complications and betrayal.
Tiger Raid is a Dixon Baxi Evans film, produced by Gareth Coulam Evans with the participation of The Irish Film Board. Co-producers are Martina Niland and David Collins for Samson Films.
Adapted from the stage play entitled Radio Luxembourg by Mick Donnellan, the film was written by Mick Donnellan, Dixon and Evans.
The deal was negotiated by Altitude Film Distribution’s Ellie Gibbons, with Bankside Films representing the filmmakers.
