Lifetime, Brit producer form Metrotime

Metrodome, producer of the low-budget British films “Leon the Pig Farmer” and “Beyond Bedlam,” has joined forces with the Lifetime Group to form a new filmmaking venture, Metrotime.

Metrotime expects to produce two features in 1994 –“Midnight Meat Train,” based on a short story by horrormeister Clive Barker, who will be executive producer; and “Proteus,” scripted by Harry Adam Knight, the screenwriter of “Beyond Bedlam.”

Total cost of the two films will be about $ 6 million.

“The whole point is not to make worthy British movies, but films for the world market using as much British talent as possible,” said Lifetime chief exec Robert Page.

Separately, Lifetime and the British Broadcasting Corp. are developing a $ 15 million, eight-hour TV miniseries of Clive Barker’s novel “Weaveworld,” which is planned as a co-production with an American partner. Hollywood agency Creative Artists Agency is negotiating with four candidates.
