UK-based Intandem will handle international sales on Jules Stewart’s drama K-11.

Intandem Films has taken international sales rights to first time director Jules Stewart’s drama K-11, produced by fledgling LA-based outfit Libertine Films.

Set in LA County’s Men’s Central Jail, the dark character ensemble is written by Stewart - the mother of actress Kristen Stewart - and produced by Libertine President Tom Wright, with casting currently on a fast track.

Scheduled to shoot on location in LA this July, producers are aiming to have the film ready for an early 2012 festival launch. Libertine retains all North American rights.

Intandem CEO Gary Smith commented: “We at Intandem are delighted to be working with Jules because she has a tremendous level of creativity and a very unique voice as a filmmaker. Libertine Films has a diverse slate of films and we look forward to developing a long and successful collaboration with them.”

Writer/director Stewart, represented by ICM’s Joanne Wiles, formed Libertine Films with Wright after a 23-year career as a script supervisor.
