South Creek, Bavariapool, Paradox team up

Producers slate genre co-productions

South Creek Pictures, German producer Bavariapool and Paradox are partnering on a slate of genre films that will launch with legal drama “The Good Samaritan,” which shoots this summer in Canada and Germany.

South Creek and Bavariapool are producing with Paradox financing. Deal was signed by Dave Valleau of South Creek Pictures, Silvio Muraglia and Frank Buchs of Bavariapool and Fredrik Malmberg and Daniel Wagner of Paradox.

“Samaritan,” written by Peter Dowling and directed by Peter Howitt, centers on an up-and-coming assistant D.A. prosecuting a fatal hit-and-run case with inconclusive evidence.

“Partnering with Paradox and Bavariapool enables us to maximize soft monies through co-production models, ultimately giving us more control over the production, financing and distribution of the pictures,” said Valleau, who founded South Creek last April.

Muraglia said, “We will use the strength of this co-production and co-financing arrangement to bring back quality and originality of story to genre movies.”

Valleau’s credits include “Push” and “The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus.” Paradox’s library includes such brands as Conan the Barbarian, Kull of Atlantis, Solomon Kane, Mutant Chronicles and the works of Robert E. Howard.

Dowling penned “Flightplan.” Howitt’s directing credits include “Sliding Doors,” “Antitrust,” “Johnny English,” “Laws of Attraction” and “Dangerous Parking,” which he adapted, produced and played the lead.

Howitt is represented by Pacific Artists Management and Dowling is represented by APA.
