Atlantic Picture Company are excited to announce that Kirk Weddell, one of the directors and co-founders of Atlantic, has been shortlisted for the 2017 Academy Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting.


The fellowship, widely regarded as the most prestigious screenplay competition in the world, is awarded by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS).  The Academy, popularly best known for the ‘Oscars’, considered almost 7000 eligible screenplays this year and Kirk’s screenplay for the sci-fi thriller ALONE reached the final shortlist of just 12. ALONE, the story of a lone astronaut in an orbiting space station who has only 24 hours to save mankind, is being produced by Atlantic Picture Company in conjunction with US partners and is expected to begin production later this year.
