‘The Veteran’ draws Revolver deal for U.K.

Intandem selling action thriller at AFM

Blighty’s Revolver Entertainment has snapped up U.K. rights to Toby Kebbell starrer “The Veteran,” from Brit sales outfit Intandem Films.

Pic, written and helmed by Matthew Hope (“The Vanguard”), stars Kebbell as a young soldier who returns home from service in Afghanistan and is offered a job monitoring suspected terrorists. He then becomes obsessed with saving a young Anglo-Asian woman from a group of fanatics.

Deal was negotiated by Revolver head of acquisitions Joel Kennedy and Intandem’s

Andrew Brown, who announced the deal with Revolver CEO Justin Marciano.

Pic is produced by Debbie Shuter (“Safe Haven”) and Kim Leggatt (“Joy Division”) of DMK Prods.

Scottish thesp Brian Cox (“Troy”) and London actor-rapper Bashy (“Shank”) are also cast in the £2 million ($3 million) thriller, which Hope co-wrote with former SAS counterterrorism specialist Robert Henry Craft.

Financing was secured through private equity.

At Cannes, Revolver made one of the first U.K. deals of the market when it landed Nick Moran’s “The Kid” from Intandem.

Intandem is also shopping a new project at AFM, the supernatural thriller “Glimmer,” which Amy Smart and “Dexter’s” Desmond Harrington recently boarded.

Pic follows a girl who has had an evil presence haunting her whole life and whose only hope to recover is a mysterious “glimmer.” The $8 million pic is helmed by George Bessudo and produced by Robert Rodriguez (not the “Sin City” helmer). Sean Roberts also stars.
