    [IN PRODUCTION] Benedict Cumberbatch, Jodie Foster, Tahar Rahim & Shailene Woodley star in PRISONER 760, based on the NYT Best Selling book, "Guantánamo Diary," by former Guantánamo prisoner Mohamedou Ould Slahi. The film is being directed by Oscar-winning director Kevin MacDonald (THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND), produced by Cumberbatch (THE IMITATION GAME, nominated for an Oscar), Michael Bronner (CAPTAIN PHILLIPS, nominated for six Oscars in 2014, including Best Picture), Mark and Christine Holder (BEASTS OF NO NATION), and Lloyd Levin (GREEN ZONE, UNITED 93) and financed by 30West and Topic Studios with BBC Films, with STXinternational representing International Rights. Slahi was a suspected terrorist and was incarcerated at Guantanamo Bay for 16 years without ever being charged with a crime, without any evidence against him, and without having the opportunity to defend himself in court. The two US prosecutors in his case resigned in protest, and a US federal judge ordered Slahi's release. The government appealed and stayed the order, but later released him, concluding this alleged "terrorist" was no threat to the United States. The New York Times calls his book "the most profound account yet written of what it is like to be collateral damage in the 'War on Terror.'"

  • SAY HER NAME

    From producer William Horberg (THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY and THE KITE RUNNER), SAY HER NAME is based on the New York Times “Best Book of the Year” by Francisco Goldman. Suddenly a widower, Francisco collects everything he can about his wife Aura, hungry to keep her alive with every memory. From her childhood and university days in Mexico City with her fiercely devoted mother to her studies at Columbia University, through their newlywed years in New York City, and travels to Mexico and Europe — and always through the prism of her gifted writings — Goldman seeks her essence and grieves her loss. Humor lessens the pain as he lives through the madness of utter grief and creates a living portrait of a love as joyous and playful as it is deep and profound.
