Intandem Attached To Irvine Welsh's Ecstasy

London-based international film group Intandem has announced that it has been appointed as the international sales company for new dark romantic comedy, Ecstasy.
The film is based on the controversial book Ecstasy: Three Tales of Chemical Romance by Irvine Welsh and was a number one bestseller in over 20 countries.
The addition of this movie brings Intandem's slate up to 31 films under management and further builds on an exciting portfolio for 2011.
Ecstasy is the follow-up to Welsh's first book Trainspotting, which was voted one of the Ten Best Books of the Century by Waterstones. Trainspotting, starring Ewan McGregor, was produced on a budget of US$3.5 million and grossed over US$72 million, making it the most profitable film in 1996.
The US$5 million budget movie Ecstasy, directed by Rob Heydon, begins shooting in Canada on December 6 and stars Kristin Kreuk (star of Smallville) and Billy Boyd (Lord of the Rings, Master and Commander).
Andrew Brown, Director of Intandem, said: "We are delighted to be working with Rob Heydon and his experienced team on this darkly comic tale. Irvine Welsh has an amazing pedigree as an author and after the massive global success of the movie of Trainspotting we are very excited to be partnering with the team to bring another of Welsh's globally successful books to the big screen."
