West, Neufeld reteam for 'Let It Ride'

Intandem Films bringing the project to Cannes

LONDON -- Director Simon West and producer Mace Neufeld have reunited to make a heist thriller, "Let It Ride," from a screenplay by David Harris.

The duo last collaborated on the John Travolta starrer "The General's Daughter" in 1999 for Paramount Pictures.

The movie, scheduled to start shooting in Louisiana this summer, is being packaged by British-based sales and finance house Intandem Films, which will be packaging the financing alongside U.K.-based Silverscreen Capital at the upcoming Marche du Film.

Intandem described the $22 million thriller as a "studio-level" project and said Neufeld and West are "in talks to secure major stars" for the two lead roles, with a SAG waiver in place.

The project details the story of a beautiful blackmailer, a charming con man and a $5 million purse.
