Shooting has commenced in Denmark on Pernille Fischer Christensen’s Someone You Love; while cameras are set to roll this spring in the UK on a film based around the winner of Britain’s Got Talent 2012 - talented canine Pudsey.
Someone You Love centres on singer-songwriter Thomas Jacob who, when he travels back to Denmark to record a new album with his regular producer Molly Moe, meets his grown-up daughter Julie and his 11 year-old grandson Noa for the first time.
Fischer Christensen jointly wrote the screenplay with Kim Fupz Aakeson and the production stars Mikael Persbrandt and Trine Dyrholm.
Simon Cowell’s production company Syco Television has joint forces with Vertigo Films for the production of Pudsey: The Movie, a feature about the UK’s favourite canine Pudsey, winner of Britain’s Got Talent 2012.
Vertigo Films plans to release the feature this Christmas.
Spanish production company El Deseo will produce Damián Szifrón’s Wild Tales (Relatos Salvajes), which will feature several contemporary situations with a caustic tone, similar to Robert Altman’s Short Cuts.
The film is a co-production with Argentina’s KS Films with a budget of $3.3m. Principal photography will start in April.
