Beta Cinema is handling worldwide sales on the tale of love and the afterlife.

Producer-turned filmmaker Uberto Pasolini is to direct Still Life from his own script and has cast Eddie Marsan and Joanne Froggatt for the love and the afterlife tale.

Being shopped to acquisitions executives here at the Marche du Film by Germany's Beta Cinema worldwide, Still Life is scheduled to begin shooting this month on location in London and the Southeast of England.

Billed as a poignant, quixotic tale of life, love and the afterlife, it details the story of a case worker who looks for relatives of those found dead alone.
