Miller tapped COO of Union, Natural Nylon

Exec to set up pic pacts

LONDON — Tony Miller has been appointed chief operating officer of Union Pictures and its film production arm, Natural Nylon, whose partners include Brit actors Ewan McGregor, Jude Law, Johnny Lee Miller, Sean Pertwee and Sadie Frost.

Miller is currently director of film financier Baltic Media and was formerly chief operating officer at J&M Entertainment.

He will join the Union/Natural Nylon group Oct. 1, working alongside company principals Damon Bryant and Bradley Adams. The group produces feature films under the Natural Nylon banner and television projects through Union.

Closing deals

Miller brings many years of business affairs experience in the international film business, and his initial task will be to close financing deals under negotiation for the existing slate of films.

In the longer term he will help to expand the company’s output and build strategic alliances with co-producers.

Natural Nylon, whose first film, David Cronenberg’s “Existenz,” is in production for Alliance, will next shoot “Nora,” directed by Pat Murphy and starring McGregor as Irish writer James Joyce.

Period pics

Currently being set up are a biopic of Elizabethan playwright Christopher Marlowe and another period romp, “The Hellfire Club.” Both films will feature all five of Natural Nylon’s thesp partners, with Law or Miller likely to play Marlowe. “Hellfire Club” is in development with Propaganda Films for Polygram.

Natural Nylon has a first-look deal with Alliance for its new projects.

According to Bryant, Miller’s appointment “fills a gap that always needed to be filled” in establishing the Union/Natural Nylon operations on a firm business footing.
