Southern Light Alliance secures rights to international thriller Mice
A new Adelaide-based production partnership Southern Light Alliance has secured the rights to Gordon Reece’s international thriller Mice.
The venture comes from producer Timothy White (Two Hands, The Boys are Back) of Southern Light Films and former film publicity and marketing specialist Anna Vincent.
The partnership, formed earlier this year and based in Adelaide, aims to develop Australian projects and international co-productions.
White will continue producing through Sydney-based Southern Light Films (which is currently post-producing Ewan McGregor’s Son of a Gun) as well as develop other projects.
Mice is the first project for Southern Light Alliance, who has also partnered with Julie Ryan (Red Dog, Ten Canoes) of Cyan films.
Mice has been published in 17 countries and released in 12 languages.
“Tim White and I have worked together on several projects and saw a real benefit with setting up a production arm in South Australia,” says Vincent. “When Julie Ryan brought Mice to our attention we saw a great story with international appeal and were excited to outbid a European company to secure the rights.”
The Mice project is currently unnamed.
