Needs helmed, wrote tale of London crime family

The Syndicate and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment have picked up U.S. rights to Brit gangster pic “Charlie,” starring Luke Goss and Steven Berkoff. Pic will be Syndicate’s first theatrical release, with 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment handling video and DVD distribution.
