Tartan has found gainful employment in the U.S., the U.K. and English-speaking Canada for Flemish black comedy “Ex Drummer.”
International sales agent Wide Management has also sold Koen Mortier’s feature film debut to Germany’s Legend Home Entertainment.
Recent Rotterdam Festival competition title “Ex Drummer” provoked strong reactions — positive and negative — among crix and the public for its biting parody of a gang of low-life rock musicians. In Berlin on Monday, Jane Giles, Tartan’s head of U.S. and U.K. acquisitions, hailed helmer as “a really exciting new filmmaker” and called the pic “extremely stylish and very funny.”
Paris-based Wide Management’s Loic Magneron picked up the film at Rotterdam. Company is expecting more deals on the pic in coming days.
