Camilla Belle circles ‘Zebras’

Kwanten toplines soccer drama

Camilla Belle is in negotiations to star opposite Aussie thesp Ryan Kwanten (“True Blood”) in pic “Zebras,” which is in pre-production.

Story, penned by David Williamson (“Gallipoli”), is based on the true-life tale of a music producer who discovers talented young soccer players in the ghettos of Soweto, South Africa, and forms them into a successful team dubbed the Zebras, because it brings together black and white players.

Arclight Films is handling worldwide sales on the pic and has been shopping it to buyers at AFM having already secured deals for Greece/Cyprus (Filmopolis), Israel (Forum), Turkey (Aqua Pinema), South Korea (Hwa Chun Trading), Middle East (Italia Film) and South Africa (Nu Metro).

Pic is directed by “Driving Miss Daisy” helmer Bruce Beresford and is produced by Michael Donovan, Jim McElroy, Marta McElroy and Marlow De Mardt.

Belle also stars in upcoming pic “From Prada to Nada,” which Affinity Intl. has been selling at the market in Santa Monica.

Arclight has had an active AFM so far, completing a slew of deals for its thriller “The Courier,” starring Mickey Rourke and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Pic has secured deals in territories including Brazil (Paris), Benelux (Source Investments) and Scandinavia and Iceland (Svensk).
