Top Dog directed by Martin Kemp [pictured], Reign of the General and Red Billabong join growing slate.
Manifest Film Sales, a division of Intandem Media Group, are introducing three new films to international buyers at the EFM.
First up is Martin Kemp’s Top Dog, starring Leo Gregory and Ricci Harnett, which is currently in post-production. Universal has UK rights and will release in June.
Top Dog star Harnett’s Reign of the General (which he also wrote and stars in) is currently in pre-production and will commence principal photography at the start of March. Universal also holds the UK rights to the film that tells the story of underworld boss Carlton Leach.
Scheduled for a five-week shoot from late March on Queensland’s Gold Coast, Luke Sparke’s thriller Red Billabong stars Josh Helman and Lincoln Lewis and will feature the ‘bunyip’, a creature of legend that is said to hunt the Australian outback.
The three productions join Manifest’s growing slate, which also includes the sci-fi adventure Second Origin starring Rachel Hurd-Wood.
Robert Mitchell, CEO, Intandem Media Group, commented: “Working with such a fantastic group of experienced and talented producers and directors, the production of these 3 films is just the start of what promises to be a strong slate of commercial titles from Manifest Film Sales for 2014.”
