UK Sales and Production company Moviehouse Entertainment has picked up the foreign rights to Jesse V. Johnson's Black and White passion project, The Beautiful Ones.

Director Jesse V. Johnson and Producer Anthony Pugliese have appointed UK based Moviehouse Entertainment to handle international sales for his new film The Beautiful Ones.

The Beautiful Ones stars Ross McCall (24), Fernanda Andrade (The Devil Inside) and Brian Tee (Jurassic World) and is a contemporary re-telling of Shakespeare’s classic Romeo and Juliet set in Los Angeles’ criminal underworld. With heavy action overtones, stylishly shot in monochrome and set over a matter of a few days, Gabe Tancredi (McCall) relentlessly pursues Eva Romano (Andrade) knowing he’s putting his very life in danger from hit man Casper (Tee) amongst many others.

Johnson directs The Beautiful Ones following The Package and Green Street Hooligans II amongst others, he’s also an accomplished stuntman with credits including The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Lincoln, Mission Impossible III and War of the Worlds. Johnson is repped by Deborah Del Prete’s Coronet Management. Johnson said ‘I’m delighted to have completed The Beautiful Ones and am really looking forward to seeing the audience reaction to this unusual telling of a classic and think it will appeal to fans of classic cinema.'

The deal was concluded with Moviehouse Entertainment’s co-managing director and Head of Acquisitions Mark Vennis who said, ‘We’re really happy to have made this deal with Jesse. He’s a film maker of huge talent with a head full of great ideas, The Beautiful Ones being the latest. We think the Distributors will love it.’

The Beautiful Ones will world premiere June 19th at the Cayfilm Festival in the Cayman Islands.
