Dominic Murphy, whose debut feature White Lightnin' will have its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, is to team up again with Mike Downey and Sam Taylor of Film and Music Entertainment on a slate of projects.

The films will be produced by their newly revived MASS Productions label.

Commenting on the partnership Murphy said: 'our partnership on White Lightnin' worked out really well, we made an ambitious film with minimal resources and in tough conditions, so we are all enthused about going forward together in this new venture.'

The first project is Jesus Christ Airlines (working title), which is currently being scripted by Kit Peel. It tells the story of a family against the backdrop of the Biafra Airlift.

'We will have a solid draft of Jesus Christ Airlines by the time we get to Sundance,' said F&ME managing director, Mike Downey, 'and it will mark a complete change of direction for Dominic. Nothing could be further from the backwoods of White Lightnin' than the killing fields of Biafra.'
