Nylon inks pic prod’n Alliance

Law to star in slate's first project

Natural Nylon, the U.K. outfit of hotshot actors Ewan McGregor, Jude Law, Jonny Lee Miller, Sadie Frost and Sean Pertwee, has closed its long-gestating production deal with Alliance Pictures (Variety Show Daily, No. 2), sources say.

The deal, which is for at least one, possibly two years, will see Alliance financing the development and production of an unspecified number of Natural Nylon pics. Alliance will hold worldwide rights to the slate.

The first is likely to be the period comedy “Marlowe,” loosely based on the life of the 16th century playwright. Law is set to star, and Iain Softley (“Wings of the Dove”) is in talks to direct.

Pic, which was written by Alex Ayers, will be produced by Natural Nylon execs Damon Bryant and Bradley Adams.

Natural Nylon was repped by CAA in the negotiations.
