Mart goes Renegade for pic slate

Shingle gearing up to launch U.S. theatrical arm

Renegade Worldwide, the genre division of Crystal Sky, has a slate of new productions and acquisitions that it’s unveiling to buyers at AFM.

Since its launch in Cannes, shingle has aggressively geared up a slate of under-$20 million projects. Pics are acquisitions or films Renegade will co-finance or fully finance.

Shingle is also gearing up to launch a U.S. theatrical arm that will focus on limited releases. Company will put up P&A for pics that have a specialty theatrical appeal; others will go straight to DVD.

“Our goal is to build Renegade as a home for high-quality, high-concept genre-driven films that appeal to a worldwide audience,” said Patrick Ewald, exec VP of development and production. Ewald heads Renegade under the supervision of Crystal Sky prexy-CEO Steven Paul with Nadine De Barros, VP of acquisitions and international sales.

Crystal Sky put up P&A for a number of U.S. theatrical releases, including “Baby Geniuses.”

Pics on the new slate include acquisitions “18 Fingers of Death,” a martial arts action comedy starring James Lew, Lorenzo Lamas, Robin Shou, Pat Morita and Don “the Dragon” Wilson, and “One,” a sci-fi actioner being directed by Jason Tomaric. Latter pic is set in a post-apocalyptic world where a warring humanity is on the verge of extinction and one man holds the key to survival.

Shingle has also acquired supernatural thriller “Headhunter” and is selling horror pic “The Storyteller,” starring Sean Patrick Flanery and Dina Meyer. Latter pic was directed by Andrew Getty.
