London-based company to handle sales on Kimble Rendall’s [pictured] thriller.
London-based GFM Films is handling sales on Blowback, a new $25 million thriller from Australian filmmaker, Kimble Rendall.
Written by Brian Trenchard-Smith, Blowback follows ex-Special Forces Op, David Craig, as he takes his 15 year old daughter Marcy to Sydney to show her where he met and fell in love with her late mother. When Marcy is mistakenly abducted, simply by being in the wrong place at the wrong time, Craig is given just 72 hours to get her back in once piece.
GFM Films are co-producing the project with Australian producer Antony I. Ginnane as part of a joint venture to develop, finance and produce the film which is set to shoot in Sydney in the New Year. Cast will be confirmed shortly.
“Mike Ryan and I have known Tony for many years and between us have worked successfully on 6 movies, the last being the Peter Weller sci-fi Screamers released by Triumph Films for Sony. Tony introduced the script to us at the AFM last November and we both felt it to be a very commercial and action packed page turner,’ GFM Films’ Guy Collins commented. “Kimble was the first director to be approached and we are delighted that he has agreed to join the movie. Feedback from distributors on Kimble’s previous work has been very positive.”
