Blood or Water and Hail go with Denmark’s LevelK
Scottish director Justin Molotnikov’s upcoming mystery-noir thriller, Blood or Water, which will go into production next year with Stephen McCole, Greta Schacchi, Kate Dickie and Gary Lewis as leads, has been picked up for international sales by Danish film boutique LevelK.
Blood or Water is LevelK CEO Tine Klint's second Molotnikov presentation following his feature debut, Crying with Laughter,which won the BAFTA Scotland Best Feature Film 2009 and was also produced by Molotnikov and Claire Mundell, for their Glasgow-based unit Syncronicity Films.
LevelK has also signed for Australian director Amiel Courtin-Wilson’s first feature, Hail – the first Australian feature in ten years to be selected for competition at the Venice International Film Festival (August 31-September 10).
Daniel P. Jones, an Australian ex-prison inmate turned actor, and his real-life partner Leanne Letch play themselves in the film, which Courtin-Wilson scripted from their own life experiences of love and loss. Hail was produced by Courtin-Wilson, with Michael Cody, for Flood Projects.
Later this month (August 25) LevelK’s Dirch – A Funny Man, by Danish director Martin Zandvliet, a biopic of Danish top comedian Dirch Passer starring Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Lars Ranthe, will be released by Nordisk Film Distribution AB.
Zandvliet’s award-winning feature debut, Applaus (Applause) [+see also:
