London — Producers Hamish McAlpine (“Funny Games,” “Bundy”), Colin Vaines (“Coriolanus,” “My Week With Marilyn”) and Carole Siller (“Funny Games,” “The Hillside Strangler”) have teamed up to launched shingle Broadstairs Films to develop and produce their joint projects. The partners will be at the Afm to meet with agencies and sales companies.

Broadstairs’ first two projects are “Lost Girl” and “Bhopal.” “Lost Girl,” which is based on a story by McAlpine and written by Susan Everett, is a London-based supernatural thriller about a kidnapping that goes awry with horrifying consequences. “Bhopal” is a documentary about one of the planet’s worst man-made disasters, when an American-owned pesticide plant leaked a deadly chemical gas over the densely packed slums of Bhopal, India. The gas killed up to 10,000 people, within hours, and 15,000 more have since died from its effects.

Broadstairs will draw on the strengths of the three to enable it to cover all areas of the biz. »
