Microwave heats up three pics

Film London microbudget plan pumps 'Kingsland' 'Lilting,' 'Seekers'

Three new pics have been greenlit through Film London’s microbudget production scheme Microwave.

“Kingsland,” penned and helmed by Tony Grisoni (scribe of “Red Riding” trilogy), is set in London’s hidden Kurdish community and produced by Mike Elliot.

“Lilting,” written and directed by Hong Khaou and produced by Dominic Buchanan, is an uplifting tale that explores falling in love without a common language.

“Seekers,” written by Arinze Kene (star of Microwave’s “Freestyle”) and directed by Nicole Volavka, is a thriller set in London’s illegal immigrant underclass. Rob Watson produces.

Another Microwave project, Rapper-singer Ben Drew’s (aka Plan B) directorial debut “Ill Manors,” preems in Cannes this weekend.

Bankside Films are shopping international rights while Revolver Entertainment are distributing the pic in the U.K.
