'Northmen' marks company's new foray into production
Producers are looking for a high-profile European cast. Ascot Elite CEO Ralph Dietrich has been eager to move into production, saying it made sense for the company to also own worldwide rights to titles. Ascot Elite has yet to sign a sales company for “Northmen,” which is the company’s first foray into international production in nearly two decades. Switzerland’s biggest indie distrib has primarily focused on theatrical and home entertainment distribution. The Swiss-born Faeh has directed and/or produced pics including Joe Dante’s “The Hole,” Billy Zane starrer “Sniper: Reloaded,” “Starship Troopers 3: Marauder” and “Hollow Man II.”
