IM Global Pacts With Edgy Brit Producer

EXCLUSIVE: Los Angeles-based sales agent IM Global has made a multi-film commitment to take upcoming in-house productions from UK distributor Revolver Entertainment. The slate will go through IM Global’s Octane genre label. “We’re looking to create films that have the potential to travel internationally,” Revolver CEO Justin Marciano tells me. Gunslinger, Revolver’s in-house production arm, has two projects it is pushing forward on: Offender, directed by Ron Scalpello, which the company is pitching as a Brit version of A Prophet; and Lenny “The Guvnor” McClean (working title), based on the true story of a East End thug who became Britain’s most notorious bare-knuckle fighter.

Production starts early December. (more…)
