Richardson, Hurt starrer nabbed with stalking '60s-set pic
Moviehouse Entertainment is handling worldwide sales for two new movies: Hettie MacDonald’s “Bad Blood,” the screenwriting debut of actress Emily Mortimer (“Dear Frankie”), and Peter Medak’s noirish “The Triangle.”
“Bad Blood,” starring Miranda Richardson and John Hurt, is adapted from Lorna Sage’s bestselling memoir about her childhood struggles.
It’s produced by Stephen Evans and starts shooting this fall.
” ‘Bad Blood’ is a classic tale of triumph over adversity and, as such, will appeal to young and old alike,” Evans said. “The book became a serious bestseller on the back of good reviews but, more importantly, word of mouth. We believe the film can do the same.”
“The Triangle” stars Lena Olin, Thora Birch, Giovanni Ribisi and Lynn Redgrave. Set in small-town America in 1962, it’s about a charming drifter who pursues a woman and her daughter.
Set to shoot in September, it’s produced by Karel Dirka or Art Oko, Ralph Christians of Magma Films and Michele Berk of Lotus.
