Great Point Media, The Development Partnership Join Forces on Slate of Movies

Great Point Media and The Development Partnership, the development and production arm of the talent agency the Artists Partnership, are joining forces to develop, package, and co-produce multiple films, kicking off with three projects, including “Chasing Agent Freegard,” starring James Norton (“War Peace”).

“Chasing Agent Freegard,” which is being produced by “Captain Phillips” co-producer Michael Bronner, is based on the gripping true story of Robert Hendy-Freegard, a con man who masqueraded as an MI5 agent and fooled several people into going underground for fear of assassination by the IRA. Norton, who stars in upcoming Berlin competition title “Mr. Jones” by Agnieszka Holland and will be seen next in Greta Gerwig’s adaptation of “Little Women,” will executive produce “Chasing Agent Freegard” through his recently launched banner, Rabbit Track Pictures.

The other two projects to be developed under the agreement are “Let It Go” and “Rose.” Produced by Damian Jones (“The Iron Lady”), “Let it Go” will be written by Robyn Charteris, based on the memoir of Stephanie Shirley, a former child refugee, trailblazing entrepreneur, driven philanthropist and computing pioneer whose tech business is said to be worth more than £2.6 billion.

“What a wonderful moment to tell this story of a child refugee who became a multimillionaire,” said Jones, adding that Shirley’s work ethic, moral compass and ethos of giving back fly in the face of the entitlement-ridden times we’re living in.

“Rose” is a dark, Gothic exploration of one couple’s relationship that explores the pressures of dependency, illness, guilt, loneliness
