Lakeshore reels in ‘Monday’

Low-budget drama helming bow for Benson Lee

Lakeshore Intl., the foreign sales arm of Lakeshore Entertainment, has acquired international rights to the low-budget drama “Miss Monday.”

Pic, which marks the directorial debut of Benson Lee, stars James Hicks and Andrea Hart.

“Monday” is Lakeshore’s first acquisition since Peter Rogers replaced Rena Ronson as prexy of the international division last month.

Set in the fast-moving world of London’s financial district, pic features Hicks as a struggling screenwriter who becomes infatuated with an ambitious young financier (Hart).

Lee, Richard Morel and Paul Leyden wrote the film, a co-production between Lee’s Mondo Paradiso Films, U.K.’s Metropolitan Films and Japan’s Sunny Side Up.

Film also stars Nick Moran, Alex Giannini and Julie Alannagh Brighten.

Lakeshore Entertainment has a 15-pic, five-year deal with Paramount Pictures for films in the $15 million-to-$30 million range. Paramount distributes all the films in North America, while Lakeshore handles international.

Domestic rights to “Monday” are held by Mondo Paradiso.
