About Bad Samaritan
David Tennant plays a character named Cale Erendreich. Joining Tennant are Robert Sheehan (Sean Falco) and Carlitos Oliver (Derek Sandoval) as young car valets who use their business as a front to burglarise houses.
The film is directed by Leverage and The Librarians creator Dean Devlin. Dean Devlin’s Electric Entertainment is producing the film alongside Marc Ruskin and Rachel Olschan. Bad Samaritan is screenplay by Brandon Boyce (Wicker Park and Apt Pupil)
About You, Me, and Him
You, Me And Him is a witty romantic comedy set in middle class England about two female lovers, one a career driven lawyer (Lucy Punch) and the other a fun-loving, pot smoking layabout (Faye Marsay) and their annoying Casanova neighbour (David Tennant). While neither woman ever wanted children, both end up pregnant, creating conflicts that cause each to re-examine their outlook on life and their relationship.
The film is based on writer/director Daisy Aitkens’ original screenplay. It is produced by Phin Glynn (Mad To Be Normal), Georgia Tennant (96 Ways to Say I Love You) and Harriet Hammond (Mad To Be Normal) for Bad Penny Productions.
Director of Photography is John de Borman (Quartet).
Double Dutch International recently acquired worldwide sales rights to the film.
