Ken Marshall of Steel Mill is producing in partnership with Jens Meurer and Egoli Tossell Film. Financing the film and also producing are Maven Pictures’ Trudie Styler and Celine Rattray, Film House Germany, Film I Vast and Creative Scotland. Will Clarke exec produces.

Sierra/Affinity announced during Cannes last May that it would represent international sales on “Filth” for Steel Mill, with Lionsgate releasing in the U.K. and Icon distributing in Australia.

It’s the second feature for Maven, which is in post on “Imogene,” starring Kristen Wiig, Annette Bening and Matt Dillon.
