Island Games chosen for EU Media II Euroscript Development

Island Games, described as a "Hugh Grant-type romantic comedy", by Who's Buying What subscriber Brendan Foley, has been chosen for development by Euroscript for MEDIA II, the European Union's government-sponsored film development program.

The deal includes up to six months of script development time and funding, followed by the resulting draft being promoted by Media II to production companies and studios as well as through its own resources. In return, the script and any subsequent film will credit MEDIA II and Euroscript.

Details of the plot are being kept under wraps, but the script is described as "a funny, very visual, international battle of the sexes", set in London and Italy.

Foley says he hopes the European development news will be a springboard for Hollywood interest. "My aim is to make a romantic comedy cabable of making people laugh and cheer whether they are in Los Angeles, London or Milan." "Romantic comedies do not always translate well around the world, as those driven mainly by smartass dialog often founder in translation. This is very visually driven. My own outlook is much more U.S. than Euro-auteur, and I hope this will become a mainstream movie that shows the capacity for European style and American story-telling to meet in a funny, mainstream success."

Foley, previously an award-winning international features journalist who has worked in 55 countries covering business and conflict, is a recent convert to screenwriting. His first script, The Rising co-written with LA screenwriter Shelly Goldstein was a $1000 finalist in the Australian International Screenwriting Contest 2000. The Rising is a historical drama about the Irish Easter Uprising set in 1916 Dublin,described as "Greens - a sort of Irish Reds."
