PFE in a ‘Snarl’ with BBC

Winterbottom to helm low-budget pic

LONDON — Polygram Filmed Entertainment is joining with BBC Films to co-finance “Snarl Up,” which Michael Winterbottom will direct.

The low-budget film is based on an original screenplay by Gallic scribe Laurence Corriat, who lives in London.

It is described by producer Andrew Eaton as “a ‘Short Cuts’ set in central London,” as it follows the various members of one family over the course of one weekend.

Principal photography on “Snarl Up” will start just five weeks after Winterbottom wraps his current pic “Old New Borrowed Blue,” which he started shooting this week for Channel 4. Both films are produced by Winterbottom and Eaton’s Revolution Films, which has a first-look deal with PFE.

“Snarl Up” has been greenlit by PFE subject to casting, which is currently being finalized. The deal indicates the determination of PFE execs to keep their business going as usual, despite the uncertainty surrounding the division’s future ownership.
