London production outfit Salon Pictures has partnered with Samantha Horley’s sales and finance firm Salt Co. on thriller “Laundrymen.” Salt will introduce the project to buyers.
The pic, which was written by Christopher Bell and will be helmed by Ian Bonhote, centers on a bank robber who coerces his sons into helping him retrieve his hidden haul, which is anchored to the seabed.
Salon’s Nick Taussig and Paul Van Carter (pictured) are producing.
Salon was set up last year by Taussig and Van Carter, who previously worked at U.K. distribution and production company Revolver Entertainment, which shuttered last year.
Also leading Salon’s Cannes slate is Pratibha Parmar’s BFI Documentary Fund-backed experimental biography of writer Andrea Dworkin, which begins the first leg of its shoot in Washington, D.C., this month.
Salon is in talks with co-production partners for actress-writer Sharon Horgan’s debut feature as a helmer, “Meet Me in Ten Years,” written by Frances Poletti. The comedy is backed by Creative England. Horgan is best known for comedy series “Pulling.”
