Arclight’s Hong Kong focus

Hamilton taps producer-scriptwriter Logan as HK rep

SYDNEY — Buoyed by the feat of having pre-sold “The Twins Effect” to nearly every significant territory in the world, Sydney- and L.A.-based Arclight Films is building a bridge between Hong Kong cinema and the West.

Arclight CEO Gary Hamilton has tapped producer-scriptwriter Bey Logan as his rep in Hong Kong, aiming to co-produce and acquire films in the region.

Logan was a producer on action-comedy “Twins Effect” and co-wrote with helmer Gordon Chan the upcoming Jackie Chan starrer “The Medallion.” A 10-year Hong Kong industry vet, he held various exec posts at the Emperor Multimedia Group (producer of “Twins Effect” and “Medallion”) and with Media Asia.

Logan brought “Twins Effect” to Arclight, sparking Hamilton’s move to formalize the relationship with Logan’s Shankara Prods.

For Arclight, Logan will source Hong Kong films for international distribution and develop co-prods with local companies. The latter slate is headed by “Kung Fu Master,” a U.K.-Canadian-China venture, scripted by Logan, being developed by Arclight and its U.K. partner, Spice Factory.

“I don’t think there’s anyone in a better position than Bey Logan, in terms of personality and experience, to act as a link between Hong Kong cinema and the West,” Hamilton says.
