Canadian director-producer launches UK film fund

Canadian director-producer launches UK film fund
Exclusive: Alchemy Fund aimed at supporting films in the £1m-£10m range.

London and Vancouver-based director and producer Ryan Bonder is launching Alchemy Film Fund, which will look to invest in projects in the £1m-£10m budget-range.

Backed by “a small stable of private investors” who have previously backed Bonder’s own slate of films, the fund will look to invest in film and TV projects via Eis schemes.

According to Border, whose sophomore feature The Brother (2016) was backed by the same private investors and Telefilm Canada, Alchemy will offer debt, tax credit and equity finance.

Bonder said: “The focus will be on unique director-led projects we believe have strong cross-over appeal.”

The fund will also look to back event-cinema projects: “While independent films struggles to find space in the theatrical market, filmmakers must become more creative in how their films are marketed and viewed,” he said.

“You have to offer something different and unique to reach

Movie Review: Deadpool

The New Year is just now starting to feel for real. Folks are remembering to write 2016 on the check they sign and, who knows, maybe even starting to pay attention to the upcoming election season. Well, maybe. But before we get too serious about life let us savor some silliness. Deadpool is a film about a seriously messed up dude named Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds). He was a soldier. Then he was a mercenary. Eventually he becomes the superhero called Deadpool – beloved by geekdom the world over. This film is his origin story.

Deadpool was written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, best known for Zombieland (2009), so they know the funny. It is based on the popular comic character work created by Rob Liefeld and Fabian Nicleza. Tim Miller makes his feature film directorial debut here.

Jed Rees talks going head to head with Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool

  • Cineplex
Jed Rees plays The Recruiter in this month’s Deadpool. He’s the mysterious man who finds terminally ill Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) and offers him the chance to not only live, but transform into a potty-mouthed, indestructible superhero.

Although he now lives outside Los Angeles, Rees was born and raised in Vancouver — as was Reynolds — which led to one of those “isn’t life funny” moments on the film’s Vancouver set.

“It was cool, we were shooting in the Cobalt Hotel, which is pretty famous for being a complete dive bar,” says Rees on the line from his California home, “and I’m thinking, ‘Here’s a couple of kids from Vancouver working on a big movie in their hometown.’”

Rees has appeared in more than 60 films and TV shows in his 25-year career, including Galaxy QuestandElizabethtown, but the opportunity to go toe-to-toe with Reynolds was special.

“It was a bit intense,

'Deadpool' Review: Ryan Reynolds Delivers a Superhero Game-Changer

'Deadpool' Review: Ryan Reynolds Delivers a Superhero Game-Changer
Imagine, if you will, that all of the movie superheroes represent students in a class. The Marvel heroes represent that kid who has it all. You know who I'm talking about. The most popular kid in school who is also the quarterback of the state-champion football team, has a 4.0 Gpa, dates the hottest cheerleader, and maybe he even volunteers at the hospital to boot. Basically, he's the kid you want to hate because he has it all, and yet you just can't, because he's so awesome. Warner Bros.' DC Comics heroes represent something like the brooding valedictorian, incredibly focused but super-serious, almost to a fault. 20th Century Fox's X-Men franchise, naturally, would represent the class outsider, which brings us to Deadpool. Sure, Deadpool is part of the X-Men franchise, and he's just as much of an outsider as the rest of them, but he's so much more than that.
