The picture is financed by AGC Studios and BondIt Media Capital. The producers are Mark Lane of Tea Shop Productions, Kevin Sampson of White Star Productions and Stuart Ford, AGC Studios chairman and CEO.

True Brit has taken U.K. distribution rights with AGC International handling international sales on the title.

Originally scheduled to shoot all of its interiors in Malta, AGC moved the production back to the U.K. making the film one of the first productions to directly relocate as a result of the recently enacted Independent Film Tax Credit announced by Chancellor Jeremy Hunt.
