said Wilson and Nestel.
“Matthew Newman’s entertaining and sophisticated screenplay has attracted a magnificent cast and director and we couldn’t be more pleased to see the picture come to life with the support of Envision Entertainment, Merced Media Partners and The Solution sales organization,”
said Richard Lewis.
“Englishman has an appealing blend of sex, style and sophisticated humor. On one level, it is fascinating study of a man who hides his total fear of love behind completely outrageous behavior. Pierce and I are very proud to be announcing Englishman at this year’s market with our long time partner on the project, Richard Lewis, and our other amazing partners at Envision and The Solution,”
