Tartan rides with Khalfoun’s ‘P2’

Distrib takes eight pics

LONDON — Tartan Films has acquired all U.K. rights to eight films at last month’s Cannes Film Festival.

Its biggest pickup was Franck Khalfoun’s stalker movie “P2” from Summit Entertainment, about a girl trying to escape a homicidal security guard in a parking garage.

Tartan bought two competition prizewinners, “Silent Light” by Carlos Reygadas, and “Paranoid Park” by Gus Van Sant. It also acquired Van Sant’s debut pic “Mala Noche,” long unavailable and now fully restored.

Extending its relationship with Korean helmer Kim Ki-duk, the distrib bought his latest movie “Breath” and his previous pic “Time.” It also bought Kim Jee-Woon’s upcoming oriental Western “The Good, The Bad and The Weird,” and Chan Wook Park’s “I Am Cyborg.”

According to Tartan managing director Laura DeCasto, this mix of titles “perfectly demonstrates Tartan’s range and ambition.”
