'Scotland' team to work with Gabriel Range

ContentFilm takes on sales of 'powerfully universal film'

LONDON -- Writer Jeremy Brock and producer Andrea Calderwood are reuniting to write and produce Gabriel Range's sophomore directorial outing.

The producer-writer team behind the award-winning "The Last King of Scotland" is uniting with Range on his follow-up to his debut outing "Death of a President."

Wunmi Mosaku, Isaach De Bankole, Lubna Azabal, Igal Naor, Hiam Abbass, Nonso Anozie and Nasser Memarzia are all cast in the project inspired by extraordinary real-life events currently shooting in Kenya.

Billed as a controversial thriller about London's slave trade it details the story of one woman's fight for freedom.

Produced by Calderwood and exec produced by Gail Egan, Liza Marshall, Katherine Butler and Range, the picture is bankrolled by the U.K. Film Council, Channel 4, Film Agency for Wales, Limelight and Molinare.

U.K.- and U.S.-based sales and finance house ContentFilm has taken worldwide sales duties on the movie and will unveil it to buyers at next week's European Film Market in Berlin.

Calderwood said: "Gabriel is one of the U.K.'s most exciting new directing talents and has already made a big impact internationally. Working with writer Jeremy Brock, he is crafting a powerfully universal film in an epic setting, which will resonate strongly with audiences around the world.
