‘Lion’ screenwriter Luke Davies is teaming with fellow Aussie Kim Farrant on her next film, Angel of Mine.
Per Deadline, the film is set to go into production in July. Davies co-wrote the script, an adaptation of French director Safy Nebbou’s film L’Empreinte De L’Ange, with David Regal.
Fortitude International has acquired the worldwide rights and will finance. The film will be shopped at Berlin’s European Film Market.
Angel of Mine follows a woman struggling to cope with the tragic death of her daughter in a fire. Years later she’s convinced that a stranger’s daughter is her own, and begins to lose touch with reality.
Garlin Pictures’ Brian and Josh Etting will produce with Su Armstrong of SixtyFourSixty. Fortitude’s Nadine de Barros and Robert Ogden Barnum are EPs.
Davies is also working on a mini-series adaptation of Catch 22 with David Michôd, and told IF last December that he was “exploring” the prospect of writing Jen Peedom’s first feature: the story of Tenzing Norgay, the Sherpa who climbed Everest with Edmund Hillary.
