The Japanese outfit has closed a raft of territories on Shinsuke Sato’s Gantz.
Japan’s Nippon Television Network (NTV) has sold Shinsuke Sato’s Gantz to Wild Side Films for France and Tiberius for German-speaking territories. Wild Side snapped up NTV’s The Incite Mill – 7 Day Death Game, directed by Hideo Nakata, earlier in the market.
