Savage Film Gets Boost From Eyeworks Belgium (EXCLUSIVE)

Warner Bros.-owned Eyeworks Belgium has become a minority shareholder in Flemish production outfit Savage Film, the company behind Michael Roskam’s “Bullhead.”

Roskam, (pictured0 whose Fox Searchlight pic “The Drop” will be released in September, has also become a partner in Savage Film, which will act as an exec producer on projects such as Robin Pront’s feature debut, “The Ardennes,” with Matthias Schoenaerts, Jeroen Perceval and Jan Bijvoet; and Wim Vandekeybus’ first feature, “Galloping Mind,” with Jerry Killick, Natali Broods and Orsi Toth. “Mind” is scheduled to start shooting in August. “The Ardennes” will start lensing in early 2015.

“Joining Savage Film means a lot to me,” Roskam said. “This is the team I made ‘Bullhead’ with. This is the consolidation of a professional friendship.”

“With this merger we intend to strengthen the company’s position and that of our titles on both the national and international market,” said Bart Van Langendonck, founder and managing director of Savage Film. “With new films in the pipeline such as Roskam’s ‘The Faithful’ (a co-production with Stone Angels in France and with Schoenaerts in the leading role) and Nathalie Teirlinck’s debut feature ‘Tonic Immobility,’ we will be reaching out to actors, distributors, financiers and audiences in France as well as in English-speaking territories.”
