Rossoff directs Wareing in thriller

Buenos Aires-based FilmSharks Intl. has secured international rights to thriller “Let Me Survive,” the latest film from producer-director Eduardo Rossoff (“The Debt”).

Produced by Luxembourg’s Jimmy de Brabant and Belgium’s Jean-Luc Van Damme, “Survive” turns on a pivotal performance by English actress Kierston Wareing, who broke through to acclaim in her first film role in Ken Loach’s 2007 Venice competition player, “It’s a Free World.”

Based on a true story, Wareing plays a mother, Kate, who survives 14 days adrift at sea in a life raft off the British coast. Both her estranged husband and daughter die on the raft. Rescued and interrogated by the Belgian police, Kate is suspected of murder.

Craig Fairbrass plays the husband. “Survive” is in production. Van Damme’s Banana Films in Belgium co-produces with De Brabant’s Delux Productions in Luxembourg.
