The first project on the slate will be Shaune Harrison’s reality TV show inspired directorial debut KTD 2020.

The first feature project to come out of newly set up UK production company Fairbanks Productions will be a sci-fi thriller to be directed by Shaune Harrison, who previously worked in prosthetics and make up special effects on all of the Harry Potter films.

Harrison has also written the script for the film, KTD 2020, which is set in the future and revolves around a new global reality game show, Kill The Dead. It will be his feature directorial debut.

Shooting is due to take place at Twickenham Film Studios this summer.

It will be the first film to come out of the new company, which was co-founded by Dominick Fairbanks, the great grandson of Hollywood legend Douglas Fairbanks.

The company aims to produce three films per year with budgets ranging from $8m (£5m) to $81m (£50m).

It has also signed a 10-year deal with Arclight Films who will act as its exclusive global sales & distribution agents and co production partners.
