LIPSYNC vamps up for BYZANTIUM with equity stake.
LipSync Productions has expanded its equity investment portfolio with another highly anticipated production, the forthcoming vampire thriller, Byzantium – a co-production between Stephen Woolley’s Number 9 Films and Parallel Films.
Byzantium is the fourth Stephen Woolley production to come to LipSync after they also provided equity investment and post services for Great Expectations (in production), Made in Dagenham and How To Lose Friends and Alienate People.
Currently shooting in Ireland, Byzantium is directed by Neil Jordan (The Crying Game) and stars Gemma Arterton (Tamara Drewe), Saoirse Ronan (The Lovely Bones) and Johnny Lee Miller (Trainspotting).
LipSync Post will also complete all post work for the film, which is scheduled to start in June 2012 with a release date later this year.
Studio Canal will handle UK distribution.
