Howitt to helm ‘Dangerous’

Pic's cash budget comes from private investors

Peter Howitt will direct “Dangerous Parking,” a privately financed, bigscreen adaptation of Stuart Browne’s cult 1999 novel starring Saffron Burrows and Sean Pertwee.

The pic’s cash budget comes from private investors, including executive producer Hani Farsi, and will cover hard costs such as location fees and food. The remainder of the budget will be donated by companies and individuals — including the crew — who will receive shares of sales.

“Dangerous Parking,” which started shooting Tuesday, is about a former alcoholic filmmaker who has lived a heady life of sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll but is forced to evaluate his past when he is diagnosed with cancer.

The book was Browne’s only novel before he died of cancer.

“Sliding Doors” helmer Howitt scripted and will topline alongside Burrows, Pertwee, Alice Evans, Tom Conti and Dervla Kirwan.

Richard Johns produces for Howitt and Johns’ production outfit Flaming Pie Films.
