TriCoast Worldwide to Release Pics in U.K. Through Partnerships

LONDON — U.S. distribution and production outfit TriCoast Worldwide is set to release a string of movies in the U.K. via digital, DVD and theatrical partnerships through newly-formed TriCoast U.K.

The Movie Partnership, led by Michael Lee (pictured left) and Peter Dutton (pictured right), will handle digital releases, as well as manage TriCoast’s TV sales. Spirit Entertainment will be handling DVD releases, and theatrical releases will be managed through Martin Myers and Bertrand Lipworth. Myers will also oversee airline sales for U.K. and Europe.

CEO of TriCoast Worldwide, Strath Hamilton (pictured center with TriCoast chief executive officer Marcy Levitas Hamilton), said: “After 28 years of producing movies and seven years distributing them in the U.S. and the rest of the world, we’re pleased to finally enter the U.K. market, where we’ve noted an upward trend in the distribution landscape, particularly the digital platforms, for good quality independent films.”

The first joint-venture will be the digital and DVD release of “Heavenly Sword,” a CGI animated film based on the best-selling Sony video game and featuring the voices of Anna Torv, Alfred Molina and Thomas Jane. Further releases this autumn include “2 Jacks,” directed by British helmer Bernard Rose and starring Sienna Miller, Danny Huston and Jack Huston, “Toolbox Murders 2,” starring Bruce Dern, family drama “Among Ravens,” starring Amy Smart, and “3 Nights in the Desert,” starring Vincent Piazza, Amber Tamblyn and Wes Bentley.

Acquisitions for TriCoast U.K. will still be handled through the U.S. acquisition team, headed by Daisy Hamilton.
