Cannes 2018: Hot Sales Movie Titles
The selection of the hot titles can be fluid until the first Friday, when packages either fall together or fall by the wayside when elements drop out, or just don’t coalesce quickly enough. The latter happened on Destroyer, the WWII drama that Mel Gibson will direct from a Rosalind Ross script, with Mark Wahlberg to play Becton, the captain of the USS Laffey who skippered one destroyer sunk by Japanese Kamikaze planes during World War II, and is hellbent on not seeing it happen again. The film got a very important tax break to shoot in Australia, and has strong interest from Warner Bros for a world rights deal and Lionsgate for domestic. The film likely will be Gibson’s next directing project – the visceral war chaos he brought to Braveheart, Apocalypto and Hacksaw Ridge shows how well tailored he is to Ross’s script, but no Cannes do at this market.
