Ireland’s Studio Atlantic and Amcomri Entertainment are entering into a multi-picture production deal.

The announcement comes ahead of the release of Atlantic’s latest production “The Gates”, a Victorian period horror starring John Rhys Davies, Richard Brake, Elena Delia and Michael Yare. The Gates is currently being sold by Amcomri Entertainment’s sales arm 101 Films International at Marché du Film in Cannes.

The deal will see Amcomri Productions co-finance the slate of movies, becoming an official financing partner of Studio Atlantic with 101 Films International distributing globally.

Michael Walker of Amcomri Productions said “After partnering with Paul at Studio Atlantic on The Gates, it was obvious very quickly that our companies would be great partners on a slate of productions and we look forward to confirming these projects over the next few months”.

Robert Price, CEO of Amcomri Entertainment added “We’re delighted to be working and supporting Paul and the Studio Atlantic team on their future slate. Amcomri Entertainment is the natural home for independent producers in film. This partnership is a key element of our growth strategy to continue to further build and develop our leading position in production, distribution, libraries and financing”.

Said Paul Thompstone, managing director of Studio Atlantic: “We are very excited to be partnering with Amcomri and 101 Films International on this occasion. Aside from our in-house productions, we have been working behind the scenes to attract international productions to consider Ireland as their next filming location.”

“This partnership is something we have been working towards for a very long time and it is magical to see such an opportunity materialize,” added Thompstone. “We have a considerable slate of amazing projects which we want to push into production over the coming years and this is where our focus will be.”
