Considine moves into Warp speed

Helmer's first full-length film will be 'Tyrannosaur'

U.K. thesp Paddy Considine will make his directorial feature debut with “Tyrannosaur,” which begins shooting in Leeds April 12.

The pic, budgeted under $3 million, is produced by Warp Films’ low-budget division Warp X and Inflammable Films.

Aussie production company Madman holds Australian rights while Optimum Releasing and Nonstop Entertainment take U.K. and Scandinavian rights respectively. The three companies are also financiers for the pic.

The drama stars Peter Mullan (“My Name Is Joe,” “Trainspotting”), Olivia Colman (“Hot Fuzz”) and Eddie Marsan (“Happy Go Lucky”) and follows Joseph, a self-destructive man whose life is spiralling into despair before he meets Hannah, a Christian charity shop worker. It is produced by Diarmid Scrimshaw.

Considine has long been a collaborator with Warp. His acting credits include “Dead Man’s Shoes” (which he also co-wrote), “The Bourne Ultimatum,” “A Room for Romeo Brass” and “Le Donk and Scor-zay-zee,” the latter two for Warp.

He wrote and directed “Tyrannosaur” prequel short “Dog Altogether” for Warp Films, which won the BAFTA for short film and a Venice Silver Lion in 2007.

Warp X was set up in 2006 by the U.K. Film Council’s New Cinema Fund and Film4 with partners EM Media, Screen Yorkshire and Optimum Releasing to offer filmmakers development support, production finance and theatrical distribution in the U.K.
