Noel Clarke’s Unstoppable Signs Three-Film Deal With Dignity (EXCLUSIVE)

Noel Clarke’s Unstoppable Entertainment and Dignity Film Finance have signed a deal for a slate of three feature films set to go into production next year, following their partnership on Clarke’s “Brotherhood.”

The production outfits have agreed to finance and produce the projects in a non-exclusive agreement. The projects will include “5.4.3.2.1,” the sequel to 2010’s “4.3.2.1,” which starred Emma Roberts and Shanika Warren-Markland.

The slate will be “commercially driven and diverse, covering a cross-section of genres,” Unstoppable said. The first original project on the slate will be announced at the upcoming American Film Market. It is described as a “high-concept thriller with international cast already attached.”

“The success of ‘Brotherhood,’ commercially in the U.K. and internationally at the Toronto Film Festival, has proven that audiences are still excited by independent films. I’m looking forward to building on our partnership from this year to develop further features and highlight new talent to the industry,” Clarke commented.

“We are delighted to announce our partnership on the slate and focus our efforts on expanding our next wave of films to an international market. We will look to develop, shoot and cast these films primarily in the U.S., Canada, U.K. and beyond. We’re united in our vision to make stories that connect at an international level and look forward to continuing our partnership with Dignity,” Unstoppable’s Jason Maza added.

“It has been a great joy to work with Unstoppable, people who are both respectful of investors and determined to achieve creative excellence. We will continue trying to connect audiences with films that break down barriers and try new ideas,” Maggie Monteith of Dignity Film Finance said.

“Brotherhood” has earned £3.7 million ($4.73 million) after four weeks at the U.K. box office, and has now overtaken the total gross of its predecessor, “Adulthood.” In 2008, “Adulthood” grossed £3.35 million ($4.28 million) in the U.K., up from £454,000 ($580,000) for the first film in the franchise, 2006’s “Kidulthood.”
