Element X sets sail with Spacey’s ‘Sea’

Thesp's Darin biopic tops shingle's sked

LONDON — Kevin Spacey’s “Beyond the Sea” heads the debut slate of Element X, a new London-based film sales company headed by former FilmFour execs Janine Gold and Natalie Brenner.

Element X also is handling “In My Father’s Den,” a U.K.-New Zealand co-production; “Man About Dog” from Irish helmer Paddy Breathnach; and the latest untitled pic from Brit auteur Shane Meadows.

All except the Meadows pic have come to Element X through a nonexclusive partnership with U.K. tax financier Visionview.

“Beyond the Sea,” a biopic of singer Bobby Darin, is directed by Spacey, who will star alongside Kate Bosworth, Cathy Moriarty, John Goodman and Bob Hoskins.

“In My Father’s Den,” written and directed by Brad McGann, stars Matthew Macfadyen, Mirando Otto and Vicky Haughton in the story of a disillusioned war reporter implicated in the disappearance of a teenage girl. It started shooting Monday. “Man About Dog,” shooting in Ireland, is a raucous comedy about dog racing.
