With Graham King expanding his international presence, it was a no-brainer for him to tap seasoned exec Lisa Wilson as president of international distribution at GK Films in September 2008. Since then, Wilson has spearheaded sales for "The Tourist," "The Young Victoria" and "Edge of Darkness" as well as Martin Scorsese's "The Invention of Hugo Cabret" and "The Rum Diary" with Johnny Depp.
Wilson also launched Parlay Films, a company set up to handle international sales for third-party pictures outside the GK Films brand. At Cannes, in addition to her GK Films titles, Wilson will be handling sales for a Parlay slate that includes "Arbitrage," starring Richard Gere and Susan Sarandon; "The Words," a drama in pre-production starring Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Irons; and "Red Lights," a paranormal thriller from Rodrigo Cortes ("Buried") toplining Robert De Niro and Sigourney Weaver.
