Carnaby to launch sales on PTSD soldier drama at AFM.
London-based Carnaby Sales and Distribution has acquired worldwide sales rights to British feature Tomorrow, presented by Martin Scorsese.
The film, which began production in London last week, includes Stephen Fry amongst its cast and marks the directional debut of Martha Pinson, Scorsese’s script supervisor since The Aviator in 2004.
The deal was secured by Carnaby joint CEO Sean O’Kelly with Roaring Mouse Productions’ Sebastian Street, Stuart Brennan, and Dean Woodford as part of a three-picture deal.
Carnaby will handle worldwide rights for the film, excluding the US, which is being handled by William Morris Endeavor (WME).
Sales will launch at the American Film Market (AFM) (Nov 5-12), where Carnaby will screen the first footage from the film to select international buyers.
Produced by London-based Roaring Mouse Productions and Studio 82, Tomorrow marks the first British film to be executive produced by Scorsese.
The script has been written by Stuart Brennan and Sebastian Street who produce alongside Dean M. Woodford. Executive producers are Emma Tillinger Koskoff, Scorsese and Carnaby joint CEO’s Sean O’Kelly and Andrew Loveday.
The film, about the difficulty soldiers experience after returning from war, will star Stephen Fry (The Hobbit), Stephanie Leonidas (Defiance), Sebastian Street (Age of Heroes), Stuart Brennan (Risen), Sophie Kennedy-Clark (Nymphomaniac, Philomena), Paul Kaye (Game of Thrones) and Joss Stone (The Tudors).
