Intandem to rep Stewart’s ‘K-11’

Prison drama set to shoot in L.A. this summer

London-based sales and financing house Intandem Films has pacted with L.A. shingle Libertine Films to handle international sales on edgy drama “K-11.”

Directed and written by first-time feature helmer Jules Stewart, the pic is a dark and complex character ensemble set in a special unit of L.A. County’s Men’s Central Jail dedicated to vulnerable prisoners.

Jules Stewart is the mother of thesp Kristen Stewart, and although press reports have linked the actress with the project, Intandem would not comment, but said casting was now on fast-track.

The indie pic is fully financed and skedded to shoot on location in L.A. this July, and is likely to preem at Berlin next year.

Libertine prexy Tom Wright will produce.

Libertine retains all North American rights for the film, with Intandem’s CEO Gary Smith serving as consultant on the negotiations.

Smith said: “Libertine Films has a diverse slate of films and we look forward to developing a long and successful collaboration with them.”

Jules Stewart, who is repped by ICM’s Joanne Wiles, formed Libertine with Wright after working for many years as a script supervisor.
