Cannes 2012: Red Sea Media Nabs Sales Rights to Charlie Hunnam's 'Frankie Goes Boom'
The film, written and directed by Jordan Roberts, will be offered at the upcoming Cannes Film Market.
Red Sea Media has acquired international sales rights to Jordan Roberts’ Frankie Go Boom, which it will launch at the upcoming Cannes Film Market.
The romantic comedy, which Roberts wrote and directed, stars Charlie Hunnam as a young man who’s continually humiliated by his brother, played by Chris O’Dowd. The film also stars Ron Perlman, Lizzy Caplan, Whitney Cummings and Chris Noth. It was produced by Pavlina Hatoupis, Marcel Langenegger and Katayoun A. Marciano, and exec produced by Elliot Lewitt and Julie Kirkham.
“Jordan has created a wild and whimsical film that’s absolutely hysterical, and this original and heartfelt comedy will set itself apart from anything else being offered,” Red Sea Media chairman and CEO Roman Kopelevich said.
Earlier this year, Red Sea Media launched at the European Film Market with sales of David A. Armstrong‘s heist thriller Pawn, starring Michael Chiklis, Forest Whitaker and Ray Liotta, and Brian A Miller‘s revenge tale Officer Down, starring Stephen Dorff, Dominic Purcell, Stephen Lang and James Woods.
