Pathe to handle sales for ‘Outlaw’

Pic toplines Dyer, Bean, Hoskins

Pathe Pictures Intl. will handle worldwide sales for maverick Brit director Nick Love’s “Outlaw,” a Vertigo Films production about vigilantism set in contempo London. Pathe will distribute in the U.K.

Through five interwoven stories, “Outlaw” explores what happens when victims of crime take the law into their own hands through violent revenge.

The pic toplines Danny Dyer, who has played the lead in Love’s three previous features — “Goodbye Charlie Bright,” “The Business” and “The Football Factory” — alongside Sean Bean, Bob Hoskins, Rupert Friend, Lennie James and Sean Harris.

Vertigo partners Allan Niblo and James Richardson are producing the pic, which begins shooting May 12 in London and southwest England.

” ‘Outlaw’ plays to Nick Love’s strengths and unique vision,” said Francis Ivernel, managing director of Pathe U.K.

The “Outlaw” deal is not the first time Pathe has teamed with Vertigo, the hot London-based production company with a growing rep for making gritty pics aimed at the young male demo.

Pathe previously distributed Vertigo’s Spanish-set gangster pic “The Business” in the U.K. and is distribbing in the U.K. the Jackass-inspired “Dirty Sanchez: The Movie,” a co-prod of Vertigo Films and MTV Films Europe. Pathe Intl. has worldwide sales on “Sanchez.”

Boosting industry and fan awareness of “Outlaw,” Love launched a cheeky budget-boosting online offer that gives fans who donate a few pounds the opportunity to become an executive producer or role as an extra.
