Saban Films acquires Calm With Horses North American rights
14 Feb 2020 : News Desk
The North American rights to Nick Rowland’s Irish Crime Drama Calm With Horses has been acquired By Saban Films.

Ex-boxer Douglas ‘Arm’ Armstrong (Cosmo Jarvis; Lady Macbeth, Peaky Blinders) is the faithful and violent right-hand-man to the drug-dealing Devers clan, ready to dole out beatings at the whim of his best friend, and the family’s unpredictable protégé, Dympna (Barry Keoghan; Dunkirk, American Animals).

Arm’s struggle to find his place in the world has consequences on his relationship with his ex-girlfriend Ursula (Niamh Algar; The Virtues, The Last Right) as she strives to find a better life for herself and their young son Jack.

When Arm is asked to kill a man who has crossed the Devers, his loyalties are truly tested and his attempts to do the right thing set off a chaotic chain of events that will affect everyone he holds dear.

Jonathan Saba negotiated the deal for Saban along with Altitude Film Sales and CAA Media Finance for the filmmakers. 

Calm With Horses is written by Joe Murtagh, directed by Nick Rowland produced by Dan Emmerson, Rory Gilmartin, Kate Glover, and executive produced by Michael Fassbender, Conor McCaughan, Andrew Lowe, Ed Guiney, Sam Lavender, Daniel Battsek, Sue Bruce-Smith, Will Clarke, Mike Runagall, Celine Haddad, Sarah Dillon.

Nick Rowland's debut feature is a DMC Film, Element Pictures production in association with Altitude Film Entertainment; developed and co-financed by Film4 and Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland with the participation of The Western Region Audiovisual Producer’s Fund/WRAP Fund.

Calm With Horses will be jointly released in Irish and UK cinemas on 13th March 2020.
