Granada sets Wolf for sales

Former Capitol Films exec to top foreign arm

LONDON — Granada Film has set up its own foreign sales arm, to be headed by former Capitol Films exec Penny Wolf.

Move marks a substantial new commitment by Granada to finance its own films instead of developing and producing for other distributors. Unit will shoot four films next year.

“Found in the Street,” based on a Patricia Highsmith novel, will be directed by Steppenwolf theater troupe founder Terry Kinney. John Malkovich’s Mr. Mudd is producing. Hugh Jackman, Kirsten Dunst and Christopher Walken are set to star, with shooting to begin in January.

“All American Man” is a romantic comedy written and directed by Craig Ferguson. He will also star alongside Brenda Blethyn and Olivia Williams.

Keira Knightley will star in “Single Girl’s Diary,” to be directed by Gaby Dellal from a script by Tessa Gibbs.

Granada is teaming with Fine Line Features to co-finance “Roofworld,” based on the futuristic novel by Chistopher Fowler. Marc and Peter Samuelson will produce with Granada’s Jeanette Day.
