108 Media and Paladin have acquired North American distribution rights to Shan Khan’s British thriller “Honour,” starring Paddy Considine, and plan a late summer release.
108 Media will handle worldwide sales in all territories outside the U.K. and will launch sales at the European Film Market in Berlin.
Nisha Parti and Jason Newmark produced “Honour,” which was financed by CinemaNX Films for Isle of Man Film and by Code Red Productions.
“Honour,” directed by Khan in his feature debut from his own screenplay, is set in London and centers on a young woman (played by Aiysha Hart), whose family targets her for an “honour” killing and hires a bounty hunter (portrayed by Considine) to do the job.
108 Media and Paladin recently announced the acquisition of worldwide rights to “Valley of the Saints,” which will also be launched internationally at EFM, with a North American release planned for mid-summer. 108 Media is also handling “And Now A Word From Our Sponsor
,” starring Parker Posey and Bruce Greenwood, at Berlin.
