The film, which also stars Antonia Campbell-Hughes and Laura Haddock, pre-sold before Cannes to Universal for the U.K., Australia, New Zealand, German-speaking Europe, Scandinavia and Benelux. Story, written by Clarke, Davie Fairbanks and Marc Small, is set in London after a military cargo plane has crashed, leaving its highly classified contents strewn across the city. “Buyers are really responding to the high-concept story and outstanding special effects,” said Independent m.d. of film sales Andrew Orr.
