EXCLUSIVE: Cargo Entertainment has taken on Black Wings Has My Angel, set to star Anna Paquin, Tom Hiddleston and Elijah Wood.

The story is about an escaped convict and high-class call girl whose lives are changed by an armored car heist.

“We’ve received a great response to the script from the buyers” said Cargo president of distribution Mark Lindsay.

“It has it all; great writing, rich engaging characters and top-notch talent both in front and behind the camera,” added Marina Grasic, managing partner of Cargo.

Alfonso Pineda Ulloa will direct from a script by Barry Gifford (Wild At Heart), Christopher Peditto and Ulloa based on Elliott Chaze’s novel.

The shoot will start in September for producers Christopher Peditto, Anthony Moody and Wood.

Cargo is also handling the Rob Cohen action thriller Undone.
