Film & TV
Our film credentials were burgeoned by the return of MGM to our shores with The Hustle as well as collaborating with the auteur filmmaker Olivier Assayas on his new feature film Non-Fiction. In between these engagements we doubled the amount of award winning Reality TV we are involved with by adding the inaugural series of Love Island Germany, after successfully servicing a third season of the UK Show earlier in the summer.
Love Island involves a group of contestants, living in isolation from the outside world in a villa in Mallorca, constantly under video surveillance. To survive in the villa the Islanders must be coupled up with another Islander, whether it be for love, friendship or money, as the overall winning couple receives £50,000.
In 2017 we supported both a UK version of the Show, for Channel ITV2, and a German version of the Show, for RTL2.
The UK Show averaged 2.6m viewers across the run, up 1.3m on last year.
The UK Show has been nominated for a 2018 BAFTA Award in the Reality & Constructed Factual Category.
UK Cast of 2017
Shot in Mallorca for around 2 weeks at the back end of 2017 in several locations including a private house on the East coast, the Maricel Hotel & Puerto Portals.
Rebel Wilson has revealed that her Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake with Anne Hathaway will be called The Hustle. The MGM film’s release date has also been moved up from its Aug. 10 bow to June 29.
The Hustle — a remake of 1988’s Dirty Rotten Scoundrels starring Steve Martin, Michael Caine and Glenne Headly. In the remake Wilson and Hathaway play women from different walks of life teaming up to con a tech billionaire (Alex Sharp) in his early 20s. The original film featured Martin and Caine, one unsophisticated and the other suave, scamming their way across the French Riviera. The late Headly played the target of their scam.
Veep director Chris Addison directed The Hustle from a script by Jac Schaeffer, with Wilson producing alongside Roger Birnbaum, under his Pin High Productions banner.
At the very end of 2018 we were delighted to welcome writer & director Olivier Assayas to Mallorca. The French auteur came to shoot scenes for his latest feature, a comedy, with many of his regular filmmaking collaborators, including actors Juliette Binoche and Guillaume Canet.
Non-Fiction: due for release in France in 2018
Set in the Parisian publishing world, an editor and an author find themselves in over their heads, as they cope with a middle-age crisis, the changing industry and their wives.
We welcomed to set a small group of visitors from the Consell de Mallorca
