Intandem takes 'Beneath Hill 60' for U.K.

Thriller took $1.5 million within two weeks in Oz

LONDON -- U.K. sales, finance and production banner Intandem Films has sealed a deal with Momentum Pictures for U.K. distribution rights to Aussie hit "Beneath Hill 60."

Owned by Canada-based Alliance Atlantis, Momentum snapped the movie up after seeing the World War 1 thriller take more than $1 million within two weeks at the boxoffice down under from a limited release orchestrated by Paramount.

Directed by Jeremy Hartley Sims, the movie stars Brendan Cowell, Warwick Young, Anthony Hayes, Jacqueline McKenzie, Gyton Grantley and Harrison Gilbertson as a group of Aussie miners who set about blowing up the world's largest stash of explosives under and behind German lines.

The hope is the explosion will mark the end of the war while Momentum will be looking for an explosive reaction at the boxoffice here.
