Paladin & 108 Media Acquire HONOUR

108 Media will be handling worldwide sales in all territories outside the UK for HONOUR, a contemporary British thriller starring Paddy Considine, it was announced today by 108 CEO, Abhi Rastogi. International sales on HONOUR will launch at this week’s EFM in Berlin, where the recently-completed film will screen in the market. A North American theatrical release through 108 and its distribution partner, Paladin, is planned for late summer

Directed by Shan Khan in his feature debut, and based on his own Brit list screenplay, HONOUR is set in today’s London and tells the gripping tale of a young woman, (played by Screen International “Star of Tomorrow” Aiysha Hart), whose family targets her for an honour killing and hires a bounty hunter (Considine, “Blitz”, “The Bourne Ultimatum”, “Dead Man’s Shoes”) to do the job.

About the deal Rastogi says, “This talented filmmaking team has done a terrific job of making a gripping, high-concept thriller about a hot-button issue. I believe that HONOUR will resonate with audiences in every market around the world.” Paladin president Mark Urman adds, “We have all read stories in the papers about this shocking phenomenon, but HONOUR takes it off the printed page, makes it flesh and blood, and gives it a racing pulse. I think press and public alike will be unusually interested in seeing this particular film at this moment in time.”

Nisha Parti, who produced the film with Jason Newmark, adds, “I am thrilled to be working with 108 on the International Sales for HONOUR. They completely understand the film and its market potential and have been both supportive and ambitious in their plans to support it through the next very crucial journey that it takes out there into the world market.”

HONOUR was financed by CinemaNX Films for Isle of Man Film and by Code Red Productions.

108 Media and Paladin recently announced the acquisition of worldwide rights to the Sundance prize-winning “Valley of the Saints,” which will also be launched internationally at EFM, with a North American release planned for mid-summer.
