Trinity picks up Buttercup Bill
by Naman Ramachandran
- Film is the first from new British production house Blonde to Black Pictures
UK distributor Trinity Film will release Buttercup Bill, the debut feature from filmmaking duo Remy Bennett and Émilie Richard-Froozan, in August. The film, which is the first production of Sadie Frost and Emma Comley’s new outfit Blonde to Black Pictures, is a twisted romance between lifelong friends and travels from the New York bar scene to the whisky-soaked Deep South. Bennett (The Wolf of Wall Street) stars alongside Evan Louison (Mariah).
Co-founder and director of Trinity Film, Cedric Behrel said, “Once again we’re proud to present another exciting debut by talented, promising and all-female film-makers such as Remy, Emilie, Emma and Sadie. Whether in breakthrough films like Import/Export [+see also:

film profile], we have always been motivated by discovery and offering the audience something bold, uncharted and that carries an element of fear and desire, and Buttercup Bill is just that.”
Frost and Comley said, “Trinity is the perfect fit for Blonde to Black and Buttercup Bill; they have released some of our favourite movies by some great directors, we love the ethos of the company and it feels like a natural union.”
Buttercup Bill has played at the New Orleans, Raindance and Marfa film festivals.
