London-based sales and production outfit Moviehouse Entertainment has signed four completed titles to its roster in time for the AFM.

Action-thriller The Contract, written by David Marconi (Enemy of the State), follows a London City fund manager in a race against time over one explosive night.

Produced by Dean Fisher, Robert Fucilla and directed by Nic Auerbach, The Contract stars Fucilla, Sarah Armstrong and Danny Webb.

Director Jay Weisman’s 3D action sci-fi Shockwave, which world premiered at London’s FrightFest, charts mankind’s battle for the last supplies of water on the moon.

Finally, Discoverdale follows comedy cult band Dead Cat Bounce on a desperate quest across Europe to reunite lead singer Jim with his long lost father who, he believes, is legendary rock singer and Whitesnake frontman David Coverdale. 

The acquisitions were concluded by Moviehouse Entertainment’s managing director Mark Vennis who said: “I’m really delighted to have secured these new pictures for our slate. While they’re all different, the constant theme of quality in their individual genre remains.”

Moviehouse will give a market premiere screening to animated feature The Hero of Colour City, and will continue to shop animation A Giant Adventure, featuring John Goodman and Kelsey Grammer among its voice cast.

Comedy-drama Funny Cow, due to shoot in UK in 2015, is set to star Maxine Peake, Martin Freeman and Stephen Graham.
