iW NEWS | Magnolia and Red Envelope Get "Hallam Foe"

Magnolia Pictures and Red Envelope Entertainment have announced the joint acquisition of all North American rights to David Mackenzie‘s “Hallam Foe,” which debuted earlier this year at the 2007 Berlinale. The film, starring Jamie Bell, Sophia Myles, and Claran Hinds, is described as the story of a voyeur who, in the words of an announcement, “driven to expose the true cause of his mother’s death, he instead finds himself searching the rooftops of the city of Edinburgh for love.” In a statement, company acquisutions head Tom Quinn enthused, “It’s sexy, adventurous, intimate and delightful all at once. The scene stealing chemistry between Jamie Bell and Sophia Myles is sure to satisfy audiences everywhere.” Quinn negotiated the pact alongside Magnolia head of business affairs Jason Janego, with Ana Ayesta and Andrew Orr from Independent. The company is planning a 2008 release. [Eugene Hernandez]
