Turkish Distributor Fabula Films Picks Up Theo James’ “London Fields”
It’s been a long time coming, but finally we have some news on Theo’s upcoming film “London Fields” with Amber Heard and Billy Bob Thornton. In an exclusive by ScreenDaily, it was revealed that Turkish distributor Fabula Films has picked up “London Fields” along with a slew of other films. This is amazing news considering that London Fields has been in Post-Production for some time now and finding a distributor usually means the difference between seeing the light of day or falling into obscurity for most films. I’m beyond excited about this new development.
Fledgling Turkish distributor Fabula Films, run by former Calinos Films execs Billur Arikan and Alkan Avcioglu, acquired more than 20 films out of the Toronto Film Festival and market.
Acquisitions included Venice hit Goodnight Mommy from Films Distribution, New Zealand drama The Dark Horsefrom Seville International, Andrea di Stefano’s Escobar: Paradise Lost starring Benicio Del Toro and Josh Hutcherson, XYZ’s action-thriller The Dead Lands, and rom-com Gemma Bovery.
From the marketplace the company picked up Jean-Marc Vallée’s latest project Demolition, starring Jake Gylenhaal and Naomi Watts from Sierra/Affinity, in a deal negotiated by Fabula’s vp Alkan Avcioglu and Sierra/Affinity director of sales and acquisitions Jen Gorton.
Also added were James Ponsoldt’s The End of the Tourstarring Jason Segel and Jesse Eisenberg from Fortitude International, and Amber Heard and Billy Bob Thornton thriller London Fields, currently in post-production, from IM Global.
