Becker returning with new company

Exec launches Becker Group Ltd

Richard Becker has returned to the film business a year after selling to Prime Group his family’s stake in the company that bore their name, Becker Group Ltd.

New shingle Becker Film Group will release Jean-Paul Salome’s “Female Agents,” in Oz on Aug. 7 and has acquired “The Last Station,” starring Helen Mirren, Christopher Plummer and James McAvoy.

Becker’s father, Russell, who died in April, founded the original Becker Group, a television production, cinema, film distribution and sales company. Prime sold the film assets to Icon earlier this year.
