Pitch winner lands Hollywood film deal

Rob McLellan, winner of The Pitch in 2010, has landed a movie deal in Hollywood. Rob won The Pitch with his pitch to make a short film based on the story of Rahab and the battle of Jericho. The film was then selected for the London Sci-Fi festival and enjoyed such a positive response in LA that he got a manager and an agent in Hollywood.

Less than two years on from the first screening of Rahab, the fruit of all this is a feature film deal with MGM which will begin with production of ABE, based on a short he made earlier this year.

Rob is also in development, with Footprint Films and Reel Issue Films, on the much anticipated feature version of Rob's The Pitch-winning film, Rahab. Rob is also considering moving to Hollywood later this year.
