Exclusive: WestEnd Films has closed a number of deals on David Gordon Green’s next film Manglehorn, including to Artificial Eye for the UK, Wild Side for France, and Swen for Latin America.

Al Pacino stars as a former criminal living a boring life until he goes back to his old ways. “The script is very strong. It’ a very different tone to Joe, and is much more humorous and tragically comical,” WestEnd MD Eve Schoukroun told Screen.

The new film starts shooting in October with Worldview again financing; WestEnd is also selling Joe, which was very well received in Venice ahead of its Toronto premiere on Monday. “I’m very excited to work with David and Worldview again,” Schoukroun said.

Other forthcoming shoots for WestEnd are Chris Eigeman’s political drama Midnight Sun set to shoot in October starring Jesse Eisenberg, Emile Hirsch and Diane Kruger; and Stephen Herek’s The Great Gilly Hopkins to star »
