Myriad Pictures will sell worldwide rights outside the U.K. on Neil LaBute’s “Seconds of Pleasure,” to be directed by Mike Figgis.

Cast includes Matt Dillon, Julia Stiles, Brendan Fraser, Kristin Scott Thomas and Christina Hendricks.

“Seconds of Pleasure,” adapted by LaBute from his novel of the same name, explores a series of intimate and emotionally charged events that occur among a small group of people traveling together on a trans-Atlantic flight from Chicago to London.

The project was developed and is produced by Scottish broadcaster STV. Producers are Margaret Enefer, STV Prods.’ head of drama; Bill Shapter; and LaBute.

Myriad Pictures CEO Kirk D’Amico said: “We immediately responded to Neil’s script, which is razor-sharp, so insightful and honest about the real challenges and temptations people face every day. Mike Figgis is the perfect director to bring this script to life, especially with this extraordinary cast.”

Production is set to start next summer.
