Toronto: War Story ‘Kilo Two Bravo’ Set for November U.S. Release

Search Engine and Honora have acquired North American rights for war story “Kilo Two Bravo” (formerly known as “Kajaki: The True Story”) ahead of its screening at the Toronto Film Festival.

Search Engine and Honora made the deal with Metro International and are planning to release in the U.S. on VOD Nov. 10 and in theaters Nov. 13. The film is now available for pre-order on iTunes.

“Kilo Two Bravo” is directed by Paul Katis and produced by Katis and Andrew De Lotbiniere. The film premiered in London as “Kajaki” late last year and earned Katis and de Lotbiniere a BAFTA nomination for outstanding debut by a British writer, director or producer.

The film tells the true story of a platoon who set out to disable a Taliban roadblock. On nearing the insurgents, one of the soldiers triggers a land mine, setting into motion a desperate rescue mission.

“Kilo Two Bravo” stars David Elliot, Mark Stanley, Scott Kyle, Benjamin O’Mahony, Bryan Parry, Liam Ainsworth, Andy Gibbins, John Doughty, Paul Luebke, Thomas Davison, Grant Kilburn, Robert Mitchell, Jon Paul Bell, Malachi Kirby and Ali Cook. Tom Williams wrote the screenplay and Gareth Unwin (“The King’s Speech”) served as executive producer alongside Alexa Jago, Alec Mackenzie, Norman Merry, Phil Hunt, Compton Ross and Lee Vandermolen.

“Kilo Two Bravo” will make its North American premiere at Toronto in the “City to City” sidebar, which showcases London-based filmmakers.
