T-Leaf Mockup



T-Leaf is a hilarious crime caper / rom-com / romp, that will appeal to a huge world-wide audience.

With aspects of "A Fish Called Wanda", "True Romance" and "The Mexican", this commercial yet highly original project is now being helmed by the BAFTA nominated and multi award Winning auteur director Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin, Push, Gangster Number 1, Wicker Park, The Acid House), who's films have time and time again been box office hits and cult classics.

About the Director Paul McGuigan.

UK native Paul McGuigan established himself as one of the more unique directors to make his presence known in Britain and Hollywood during the 2000s; he unveiled a particularly strong knack for handling crime material and thrillers with a gritty intensity that became a personal trademark and that prompted more than one comparison to Martin Scorsese. McGuigan began his occupational life as a still photographer, then worked his way into the documentary field, helming non-fiction assignments for Channel 4.

McGuigan's foray into features was with the inventive crime sagas Gangster No. 1 (2000) and Lucky Number Slevin (2006); in-between, McGuigan exhibited diversity by helming the compelling, IRA-themed non-fiction opus Facing the Enemy (2001) and the eerie, atmospheric romantic mystery Wicker Park (2004), and the same year's period whodunit The Reckoning.

In 2008, McGuigan directed the supernatural thriller Push, starring Chris Evans and Dakota Fanning; it told of a bunch of psychics who band together to rebel against the vile government agency controlling them.

That year, McGuigan also signed with the Weinstein Company to direct the period thriller Four Knights, about the events surrounding the 12th century murder of Thomas Beckett.

He has recently finished his revisioning of Sherlock Holmes for a widely acclaimed TV series "Sherlock" which sets the intrepid detective in a modern day setting.

This year we have proudly attached Paul to this project. We can think of no one better to do the script justice.
