Pathe to handle sales for 'Outlaw'
Pic toplines Dyer, Bean, Hoskins
May 3, 2006
Pathe Pictures Intl. will handle worldwide sales for maverick Brit director
Nick Love's "Outlaw," a Vertigo Films production about vigilantism set in
contempo London. Pathe will distribute in the U.K.

Through five interwoven stories, "Outlaw" explores what happens when
victims of crime take the law into their own hands through violent revenge.

The pic toplines Danny Dyer, who has played the lead in Love's three
previous features -- "Goodbye Charlie Bright," "The Business" and
"The Football Factory" -- alongside Sean Bean, Bob Hoskins, Rupert Friend,
Lennie James and Sean Harris.

Vertigo partners Allan Niblo and James Richardson are producing the
pic, which begins shooting May 12 in London and southwest England.

" 'Outlaw' plays to Nick Love's strengths and unique vision," said Francis
Ivernel, managing director of Pathe U.K.

The "Outlaw" deal is not the first time Pathe has teamed with Vertigo, the
hot London-based production company with a growing rep for making gritty
pics aimed at the young male demo.

Pathe previously distributed Vertigo's Spanish-set gangster pic "The
Business" in the U.K. and is distribbing in the U.K. the Jackass-inspired
"Dirty Sanchez: The Movie," a co-prod of Vertigo Films and MTV Films
Europe. Pathe Intl. has worldwide sales on "Sanchez."

Boosting industry and fan awareness of "Outlaw," Love launched a cheeky
budget-boosting online offer that gives fans who donate a few pounds
the opportunity to become an executive producer or role as an extra.
