At IFFR this week, Dutch production outfit Lemming has revealed full details of its 2014 slate.
The company has attached Gregoire Colin (Before The Rain, Beau Travail) to star in David Verbeek’s new English-language feature Full Contact.
Co-produced by Nukleus Film, this is a drama outfit about a drone pilot riddled with guilt after bombing a school instead of a military training camp. It will shoot in Croatia. Sales agents are circling the project, which went through Cinefondation.
The financing is also now almost in place for another Verbeek project, the China-set vampire movie Dead & Beautiful, on BAC Films’ slate.
Another new Lemming co-production is No One’s Boy, the next feature from young Chilean auteur Frenando Guzzoni, whose 2012 film Dog Flesh was a prize winner in San Sebastian.
JBA (France), Solita (Chile) and Motlys (Norway) are co-producers of the family drama. The project was a prize winner recently at the Torino Film Lab.
The company is also co-producer on Eskil Vogt’s Sundance winner and Berlin bound drama Blind, sold by Versatile Films.
Meanwhile, Lemming is partnering on Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Lobster, sold by Protagonist.
Dutch distributor Wild Bunch Benelux has already come on board Shariff Korver’s The Intruder, a new Lemming drama now in post-production.
Lemming is producing Alireza Khatami’ Oblivion Verses, a Hubert Bals Fund Plus project, and Exotic Pictures, the new feature from Rotterdam favourite Edwin.
Exotic Pictures is being co-scripted by writer-director Marco Geffen, whose own recent feature for Lemming, In Your Name, was selected as a work in progress at Les Arcs late last year.
