Sam Mendes Launches Scamp

OSCAR-winning director SAM MENDES has founded an ambitious new entertainment company SCAMP FILM AND TELEVISION.

The AMERICAN BEAUTY film-maker is returning to his theatrical roots with a series of stage adaptations, including a reworking of animated comedy SHREK and his version of classic horror SWEENEY TODD.

Mendes - who used to be the creative director of London's acclaimed DONMAR WAREHOUSE theatre - will oversee another 11 theatrical productions, plus a range of film projects including an adaptation of KHALED HOSSEINI's novel THE KITE RUNNER.

British Mendes has been on a sabbatical since directing GYPSY on Broadway last year (03), enjoying his new family life with wife KATE WINSLET and baby son JOE.
