Wide Management has sold romance Wasp to Dutch distributor Arti Film.

The feature debut from first-time Swiss-Lebanese writer-director Philippe Audi-Dor is about a gay couple whose relationship and holiday is tested by the arrival of a beautiful woman.

The feature is the first from fledgling UK production outfit Blue Shadows Films, run by Merlin Merton, whose development slate includes writer-director Rafael Kapelinski’s Cranley Gardens and Butterfly Kisses, which is currently being developed by the BBC’s Microwave scheme.

Shorts currently in post-production for the company include The Bigger Picture, starring Rosie Day and Robert Sheehan and Don’t Forget Your Hat with David Sterne.
