Wrekin Hill Entertainment Takes N. American Rights To South African Crime Drama 'iNumber Number'

iNUMBER NUMBER

Wrekin Hill Entertainment - the company that picked up Gallowwalkers, which stars Wesley Snipes, and released it in the USA this summer, has done the same for South African action/drama iNumber Number, directed by Donovan Marsh, which stars Sdumo Mtshali, Presley Chweneyagae, Israel MakoeHlubi Mboya, and Owen Sejake.

This news comes on the hills of yesterday's news that Universal Pictures has picked up remake rights to the film, with plans to produce an American version, with Chris Morgan (Fast & Furious flicks scribe), and his partner Emile Gladstone, adapting.

Both news items come a month after the film world premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.

iNumber Number follows an honest but ambitious undercover cop, who's cheated out of a major reward by his corrupt superiors, and opts to participate in a one-off score, after he infiltrates a heist gang, and instead of busting them, joins the effort, while fending off a partner who disagrees with him actions, and gang members who recognize him as a cop.

The violent, action-packed and adroitly-written and directed film by Marsh, has an oddball cast that provides some comic relief.

Wrekin Hill Entertainment has set a day-and-date release in North America next spring.

Clearly, a lot of interest in the film, which will likely screen at a stateside film festival soon.
