Miramax captures ‘Bravo’ rights

Persian Gulf drama stars Sean Bean

NEW YORK — Miramax Films has acquired North American rights to Tom Clegg’s Persian Gulf War drama “Bravo Two Zero” from Anant Singh’s Distant Horizon.

Based on Andy McNab’s bestseller about a British Special Forces patrol behind enemy lines, “Bravo” was produced by Singh and co-produced by the BBC. It stars Sean Bean (“Goldeneye,” “Anna Karenina”).

“The real-life drama of ‘Bravo Two Zero’ is a powerful and timely story,” Miramax chairman Harvey Weinstein said. “I’m delighted to once again be in business with both Distant Horizon and the BBC.”

Miramax previously distributed the Distant Horizon productions “Sarafina!” and “Cry, the Beloved Country.”

The deal was negotiated on behalf of Miramax by Charles Layton, exec vice president, office of the chairman. Singh and Alan Grodin of Wisemann, Wolff, Bergman, Coleman & Silverman represented Distant Horizon.
