Goldcrest’s getting in on ‘Elvis’ laffer

Shingle co-producing with Burnt Orange Prods.

Blighty-based shingle Goldcrest Films Intl. will co-produce the dark romantic comedy “Elvis and Annabelle” with Burnt Orange Prods., the film initiative launched by the U. of Texas and William Morris Independent.

Pic — to be helmed by Will Geiger — stars Max Minghella, Blake Lively, Mary Steenburgen and Keith Carradine in a story of unlikely posthumous love that blossoms between a local beauty queen and a mortician’s son.

Orange’s Carolyn Pfeiffer is producing, with Goldcrest’s Nick Quested. U. of Texas Film Institute’s Tom Schatz is exec producing.

Pic begins lensing in Austin this month, and Goldcrest is repping worldwide sales.

Goldcrest had credits on pics including “Gandhi” and “A Room With a View,” but hasn’t produced a project since 1996. However, the company has been ramping up, scouring film fests and markets this year to grow its library and to find projects that its Goldcrest Finishing Fund can produce.

Company recently acquired worldwide rights to “Arctic Son,” a docu about a community in the Canadian Yukon.

Orange’s credits include festival circuit pics “The Cassidy Kids” and “The Quiet,” as well as the upcoming “Homo Erectus.”
