Little’s strong-ARM tactic

Sales unit teams with Applause

International sales specialist the Little Co. has joined forces with U.S.-Asian shingle Applause Ruddy Morgan Distribution to handle worldwide sales of ARM’s Chinese pic output. Company will be repped at the American Film Market by Little Film’s Robbie Little and Clay Epstein and ARM’s Patricia Cheng.

ARM is a joint venture of Hong Kong-based Applause Pictures and the L.A.- and Shanghai-based Ruddy Morgan Organization. Firm was set up last year and handled distribution of “Million Dollar Baby” in Hong Kong and “Perhaps Love,” the Chinese-language tuner helmed by Applause principal Peter Chan Ho-sun and produced by Applause and RMO (Daily Variety, Aug. 9).

“Protege,” an underworld actioner starring Andy Lau and Daniel Wu, is the first co-production by ARM and first on the slate of the new international sales wing. Pic is helmed by Derek Yee and produced with China’s PolyBona Film Publishing and state-backed China Film Group. RMO co-prexy Andre Morgan said that collaboration will lead to an unnamed second feature by Yee with Wu in a starring role.

Little Film, headed by Robbie and Ellen Little, exec produced and is selling foreign-language Oscar winner “Tsotsi” and “An American Haunting.”
