Landmark British feature film, Tomorrow presented by Martin Scorsese has teamed up with Spanish production company Rodaje a la Carta headed up by by Ismael Issa. The hotly anticipated film, which began production in London in September has moved location to a town called Cox, in Alicante, which is located at the foot of the Sierra de Callosa mountain range in Spain. Photography will focus on war scenes featuring Sebastian Street’s character.
Produced by London based production companies, Roaring Mouse Productions & Studio 82, Tomorrow marks Martin Scorsese’s first ever voyage into British feature film as he takes on an executive producer role. It also heralds the feature film directional debut of Martha Pinson, Scorsese’s long-‐time script supervisor. Pinson has directed an award winning short film and off-‐ Broadway plays as well as collaborating with Oliver Stone and Sidney Lumet. She has also worked on Scorsese’s four most-‐recent narrative films: The Aviator, The Departed, Shutter Island, and Hugo. The script is being penned by Stuart Brennan and Sebastian Street who are producing alongside Dean M. Woodford, while Emma Tillinger Koskoff and Scorsese come on as Executive Producers.
Tomorrow is a moving and inspirational feature film, which candidly explores the difficulty and loneliness soldiers encounter as they try to reintegrate back into society having served for their country; moving on from losses and injuries to forge a life, find sustaining work and experience love. The film is a very personal journey for both writers and boldly explores several hard-‐ hitting yet underexposed issues such as post‐traumatic stress disorder, as well as HIV and AIDS.
Stephen Fry (The Hobbit), Stephanie Leonidas (Defiance), Sebastian Street (Age of Heroes), Stuart Brennan (Risen), Sophie Kennedy-Clark (Nymphomaniac 1 & 2,) who has recently been nominated for a BAFTA for her role in Philomena. James Cosmo, (Braveheart, Games of Thrones), Paul Kaye (Blackball, Game of Thrones) Joss Stone (The Tudors) Ricki Hall and Will Tudor (Game of Thrones) round out the cast of Tomorrow.
The first footage of Tomorrow is currently being screened at The American Film Market (AFM) by Carnaby Sales & Distribution. Capitalising on the strength of Scorsese enthusiasts around the globe, Carnaby’s focus will be on securing distribution in the key major territories whilst working alongside WME on domestic. Pre-sales interest has already been particularly strong, with buyers recognising the film’s appeal for both domestic and international audiences.
Carnaby holds worldwide rights for the film, excluding the USA, which is being handled by William Morris Endeavor (WME). Tomorrow is part of a three-picture deal, which was secured by Carnaby’s joint CEO, Sean O’Kelly, together with Roaring Mouse Productions’ Sebastian Street, Stuart Brennan, and Dean Woodford. Carnaby plan to premiere the film at Cannes Film Festival in 2015.
