LONDON — Sales and co-production outfit K5 Intl., which is headed by Oliver Simon and Daniel Baur, has boarded Neil LaBute’s “Dirty Weekend,” starring Matthew Broderick and Alice Eve (“Star Trek Into Darkness”).

The film, which is lensing in New Mexico, follows businessman (Broderick), who finds himself delayed in a city where a year earlier a few too many drinks led to an unexpected encounter, the half-remembered details of which have haunted him since. Accompanied by co-worker (Eve), he sets out to figure out what really happened that night.

Duncan Montgomery (Richard Linklater’s “Bernie”) and Tiller Russell are producing through their company Horsethief Pictures, alongside Joey Stewart.

LaBute, whose credits include “In the Company of Men” and “Nurse Betty,” penned the screenplay.

“Neil is that rare writer/director with an ability to entertain and amuse while revealing the parts of ourselves we’d prefer to sweep under the rug. There are no quiet lobbies following a LaBute screening,” commented Simon and Baur.

K5’s other titles at the AFM include spoof comedy “Superfast” from the makers of “The Starving Games,” which the company is also selling, along with documentaries “Cutie and the Boxer” and “Dancing in Jaffa.” The company is also selling Andrew Dosunmu’s Sundance hit “Mother of George.”
