Indie film co. to maintain Intermedia partnership
LONDON — Kate Winslet and Jim Threapleton’s Ultra Films will continue to operate as before under its overall deal with Intermedia, despite the break-up of the couple’s marriage.
An Intermedia spokesman said that Threapleton had contacted the company after news broke earlier this week about his split with Winslet, to confirm that it was still business as usual for Ultra.
Ultra was formerly named Tell-Tale Films. Winslet met Threapleton when he was assistant director on her pic “Hideous Kinky.” She is currently starring in two Intermedia movies – “Enigma” and “Iris” – and is attached as star and exec producer to Intermedia’s “Therese Raquin.”
