UA confirms pact with Revolution Films

Two-year first-look deal first cut at Cannes fest

In an arrangement first announced during the Cannes Film Festival, United Artist Films on Wednesday officially confirmed a first-look deal with London-based Revolution Films, headed by director Michael Winterbottom and production partner Andrew Eaton.

Terms of the two-year pact weren’t revealed.

UA, which operates as MGM’s indie unit, is preparing a fall release of Winterbottom’s “The Claim.” That formerly untitled pic — a love story told amid the California Gold Rush and starring Nastassja Kinski — was a truly international project shot in association with Pathe Pictures, the Arts Council of England, StudioCanal, the BBC and Alliance Atlantis.

“We are so pleased with our recent collaboration on Michael and Andrew’s latest project,” said Gerry Rich, MGM global theatrical distribution prexy. “They are visionaries with true contemporary instincts.”

Eaton said the studio had been fantasically supportive of “The Claim,” which once sported a working title of “Kingdom Come.”
