Since succeeding in reaching their £1.8m target, Simon West and producer Harry Stourton have featured on Bloomberg Business TV (below) and Sky News.

Simon West’s films have taken over $1 billion at the global box office. West and his team have produced five films that have: 1) Reached number one at the US box office 2) Taken over $100 million in revenues

West has a highly impressive track record, having produced and/or directed Con Air, The General’s Daughter, Tomb Raider, Black Hawk Down, When A Stranger Calls, The Mechanic and Expendables 2. Now Simon West is going independent: he has made the decision to produce a new film, not funded through the traditional studio-led route, but instead with the help of online equity investors.

The company Salty Film Ltd, with its experienced team, will coordinate the production of Salty, with West at the helm as lead director/producer. Inspiration for the story comes from acclaimed author Mark Haskell Smith’s Salty, with Haskell Smith also having worked on the screenplay.

The least that any of Simon’s theatrically-released films have taken at the global box office is $62m.
