Fortissimo gets ‘Delights’

Project reflects co.'s increasing interest in English-lingo pix

BERLIN — Fortissimo Films has picked up worldwide sales to “Nina’s Heavenly Delights,” a British-Asian movie by first-time director Pratibha Parmar, which starts shooting in March.

Pic, produced by Colin Leventhal and Marion Pilowsky of Priority Pictures with Margaret Matheson of Bard Entertainment, is about a feisty young Indian-Scottish woman who returns to Glasgow to run her deceased father’s curry house.

Script is by Andrea Gibb (“Dear Frankie”), with Shelley Conn playing the lead role of Nina, and Laura Fraser (“A Knight’s Tale”) as her business partner.

The project reflects Fortissimo’s increasing diversification into English-lingo movies and follows the recent opening of its first London office under Brit sales veteran Nicole Mackey.

“Nina’s Heavenly Delight” is the first Brit pic to be co-financed by Fortissimo, although it previously handled sales on another Scottish movie, “16 Years of Alcohol.”
