EmptyWORKSHOP HAS TOOLS FOR SINGAPORE FUND
Singapore's Media Development Authority has appointed Hong Kong-based Distribution Workshop to handle global sales of movies backed by its newly launched International Film Fund. The fund aims to attract films to shoot in Singapore and help its domestic industry become more involved with international productions.
Indie banner Green Knight Ventures will produce a contemporary adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Fall of the House of Usher." Claire Forlani, Dougray Scott and Rufus Sewell will star in "The Ushers," which will be shot in 3-D. Stephen Kay is attached to direct.
