Ronan Bennett (Public Enemies) is writing a new London-set action thriller for Chris Coen’s UK-based Unanimous Entertainment and Los Angeles-based Stylopik, which is funding the development.

The story, based on real events, is about a bomb detective squad in a game of cat-and-mouse with a group of terrorist operatives.

Chris Coen and Rebecca L Brown of Stylopik will produce and are here at the AFM talking about the project with sales companies and buyers.

Bennett’s credits also include The Hamburg Cell, Lucky Break and Top Boy, currently airing on UK TV. His novels include The Catastrophist and Havoc, In Its Third Year.

Unanimous is currently producing Single Shot and James Marsh’s Shadow Dancer starring Andrea Riseborough and Clive Owen.

Brown recently founded Stylopik with Oscar Eugenio Guido and financier Francisco Ortiz von Bismarck.

Bennett is repped by the UK’s Tavistock Wood.
