Germany based sales outfit Beta Cinema has taken all rights to Matt Palmer’s thriller Calibre and will introduce the project to buyers at the EFM.

Set for a shoot in June this year, the film will star 2014 Screen Star of Tomorrow Jack Lowden (71) and Martin McCann (The Survivalist).

The story follows two friends who go on a hunting trip in the Scottish Highlands, during which they accidentally kill a boy, finding themselves trapped by their decision to cover up the crime.

Wellington Film’s Alastair Clark and Anna Griffin are producing, while Lee Brazier and Richard Holmes are exec producers on the project, which has backing from Creative England.
