Bankside Inks Development Deal With ‘The Babadook’ Producer Causeway Films
Exclusive: UK sales company Bankside Film has inked a development overhead deal with Sydney-based production company Causeway Films, which has credits including Jennifer Kent’s The Babadook and The Nightingale.

The agreement will see Bankside provide development finance in exchange for a first look on international sales rights and production finance. The companies have worked previously and are already teaming on three projects in the pipeline: Racka Racka’s horror feature Talk To Me; Catriona McKenzie’s drama Stolen; and Goran Stolevski’s second feature Of An Age.

Alongside Kent’s hit horror The Babadook, which premiered to raves at Sundance, and her follow-up The Nightingale, which was at Venice, Causeway’s credits also include Yolande Ramke and Ben Howling’s Cargo, which Bankside sold to Netflix in Aus, and the upcoming You Won’t Be Alone starring Noomi Rapace, which is in post and Bankside has pre-sold to Focus Features.
