Umedia and Texit Films become Patriot Equity Financiers at Cannes

White Lantern Film and Red & Black Films are thrilled to announce that Academy Award winner Tim Robbins attaches to their science-fiction thriller A PATRIOT, currently in pre-production starring Eva Green, Kathy Bates, Ed Skrein. The Patriot team also welcomes equity financiers Umedia (Executive Producers Adrian Politowski and Peter Bevan) and Texit Films (Executive Producers Tommaso Marzotto and Italo Marzotto) to the project.

A PATRIOT has Dan Pringle (K-SHOP) attached to direct from an original screenplay he wrote, produced by Adam J. Merrifield (K-SHOP) from White Lantern Film and John Giwa-Amu from Red & Black Films with Executive Producer Angus Finney.

A PATRIOT takes place in a future authoritarian state that has walled itself away from a world ravaged by climate chaos and resource wars. The story follows the unquestioning Border Corp Captain — played by Green — as she fights to defend the purity of the population, until a chance discovery makes her doubt the authorities she has pledged her allegiance and life to protect.

Director Dan Pringle added “Tim is an icon of cinema who possesses a striking versatility. I’m delighted to welcome him to the team we’ve assembled for A PATRIOT.”

Producer John Giwa Amu, Red & Black Films said: “We are thrilled to be working with dynamic new equity players Texit films and the well-established team at U Media to complete the equity financing of A Patriot this week.”

The Exchange has worldwide sales rights for A PATRIOT and will be introducing the title to buyers at the upcoming Cannes market. The film will shoot in the UK.

Robbins is represented by ICM, Green is represented by Tavistock Wood Management and UTA, Bates by ICM, Skrein by 42 and CAA.
