“The King’s Speech” has turned out to be a wonderful way to launch the banner headed by producers Iain Canning and Emile Sherman.
“We had our own friendship for ten years before setting up the production company,” Sherman said. “King’s Speech” revolves around “an enduring friendship and felt like a perfect fit for our new company.”
And it’s the story of a strong friendship in the pic that is resonating with auds, Sherman said.
“The setting is not what the film’s about,” he said. “The film is about friendship and the triumph of the human spirit.”
