Timeless clocks in on ‘Justin’

Stereoscopic toon has high-profile voice cast

MADRID — Ralph Kamp’s sales and film production company Timeless Films has partnered with Spanish studio Kandor Graphics on 3D stereoscopic family animated movie “Justin and the Knights of Valour.”

As part of the deal, London-based Timeless Films has acquired “Justin” worldwide distribution rights outside Spain.

Formerly known as “Goleor, the Scale and the Sword,” the E22 million ($30.4 million) feature is produced by Granada-based Kandor, whose partners include Antonio Banderas’ Spanish outfit Green Moon.

“Justin” is directed by Spaniard Manuel Sicilia (“The Missing Lynx”), who also penned the script alongside Matthew Jacobs (“The Emperor’s New Groove”).

“Justin’s” high profile voice cast includes Freddie Highmore, Saoirse Ronan, Julie Walters, Alfred Molina, Mark Strong, Rupert Everett, and Banderas.

Pic narrates the story of Justin, an idealistic boy who dreams of becoming a knight in shining armor, but his magical kingdom is in painful transition to a modern age dominated by bureaucracy.

Now in production, feature film will be completed at the end of 2012 and ready for a 2013 release.

Tooner “marks a huge technological and creative leap forward for us,” said Kandor Graphics prexy Marcelino Almansa.
