Hollywood film adaptation of London Fields to hit the big screen thanks to Surrey insolvency practitioner
One of Surrey’s leading insolvency firms, Gibson Hewitt, has played a leading role in bringing the long-delayed film adaptation of Martin Amis’ acclaimed international bestseller, London Fields to the silver screen this autumn.
Acting as the administrator of Nicola Six Limited, the rights holder to the film, Gibson Hewitt has worked tirelessly to resolve a legal dispute with Amber Heard, the star of the film.
Under the guidance of Lynn Gibson, Director at Gibson Hewitt, the long-running dispute has been dismissed*, ensuring that audiences will soon be able to view the film when it makes its US release on 26 October.
London Fields was originally scheduled to premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival, but an ongoing dispute prevented it being shown, which subsequently led to the administration of Nicola Six.
Since then Gibson Hewitt has worked tirelessly, collaborating with parties around the world to resolve matters so that the film’s debut could go ahead.
Lynn Gibson said: “After a long wait we are thrilled that Martin Amis’ bold vision will finally be shared with audiences in 600 US cinemas.
“This has been a complex administration that has seen us working with solicitors and attorneys across a number of countries in order to resolve a number of complex matters. We are delighted that all parties are now happy with the arrangements.”
Set in the not too distant future, with society London Fields stars Amber Heard as Nicola Six, a beautiful femme fatale who becomes involved with three different men — a wealthy financier played by Theo James, a petty criminal played by Jim Sturgess, and a failing author played by Billy Bob Thornton.
All three become obsessed with Nicola, and one of them will kill her, although the identity of the murderer is only revealed at the film’s climax.
* No party made any payments in connection with the dismissal.
