Entertainment One nabs ‘Hooligans,’ ‘Bridge’

Stealth makes early sales at Toronto

TORONTO — Entertainment One has nabbed Donal MacIntyre’s ”Hooligans” for U.K. distribution and indie horror ”Devils Bridge” for Blighty, Scandinavia, Oz and New Zealand.

Both pics are being shopped by London and L.A.-based Stealth Media Group.

”Hooligans,” produced by Eyeline Entertainment’s Duncan Napier-Bell, focuses on the corruption within the professional soccer world, one of the world’s most viewed sports.

It is currently in pre-production and is expected to be delivered in the second quarter of 2012.

”Devil’s Bridge” is a gritty psychological thriller from first time helmer Chris Crow. It follows the story of a young man, whose business is failing, who heads into rural Wales and finds himself in unknown territory. When he and a friend cross paths with a farmer, the encounter spins out of control as the farmer hunts them through the rugged terrain.

Pic is produced by Dogs of Annwn’s David Lloyd and Crow and Kraken Film and Motion’s Vern L. Raye.

Earlier this week, Stealth Media Group boarded Ethan Hawke and Heather Graham starrer ”Shoedog,” helmed by George Pelecanos (scribe of ”The Pacific and the Wire”), which it is shopping to buyers in Toronto.
