20th Century FoxThink about the sort of film you haveproduced, and the type of films this companyhave released before – are they likely to beinterested in your film? Explain why Webelieve that ‘20th centaury fox’ wouldshow some relative interest in our filmmainly due to the fact that our film isa similar plot to their (2008) film‘Taken’. Taken was a very successfulaction/thriller production hence why Ibelieve 20th centaury fox would bekeen to distribute our film.
Is your film going to appeal to UK audiences only? Or does it have a wider appeal? Why? Why not?• We believe that our film will attract lots of different audiences from all over the world, not just UK audience. It will represent different ages and also, different ethnicities effectively which will encourage a multicultural audience.
