Key Players in the 2011 Cannes Market: Hanway Films

The U.K team only have one film in the Cannes competition in Takashi’s Miike’s Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai, but its the more than one item in Hanway Films upcoming slate that has me salivating. They’ve got Steve McQueen’s Shame, Andrea Arnold’s Wuthering Heights and David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method all in the oven. If there is a break-in at the Hanway offices this week, I don’t want anyone thinking it was me.
