Klaus Huttmann scripts and directs the thriller about a lethal website.

UK post-production outfit Creativity Media has closed finance on upcoming thriller The List, which it will produce with Made Up North Productions (Best Laid Plans)

Written and directed by director Klaus Huttmann, whose 2004 short Der Schwimmer was in competition in Cannes, The List charts the battle between the creator of a popular website which outs corrupt individuals and an assassin who starts executing those who get to the top of the list.

Creativity Media MD Patrick Fischer and Made Up North Film & TV’s Michael Knowles produce, while LA-based Imagination Worldwide handle international sales. Shooting is due to get underway in March 2012.

The film is the first to come out of the Oldenburg International Film Festival’s inaugural Speed-Pitch event, which Creativity Media hosted in September 2010.

Creativity’s Patrick Fischer said of the project: “This is a magnificent script and Klaus is a very talented director. We are proud to have packaged this film as our first original production and hope to continue producing a film a year alongside our finance and post-production business.”

Founded in 2010, Creativity co-produced Anuvahood and Sket this year.
