High Point takes world rights for Jason Ford's hoodie horror Community
UK urban horror film is in post production.
Carey Fitzgerald’s High Point Media Group has taken on world rights to urban “hoodie” horror film, Community, which is written and directed by Jason Ford.
The film, currently in post, stars Jemma Dallender and Elliott Jordan as young documentary filmmakers who investigate a notorious housing estate, where they meet a psychotic, drug-fuelled community.
Ford previously directed This is Essex (also known by the title New Town Original), also with his producing partner Terry Bird for their company New Town Films.
High Point’s Head of Development, Piers Nightingale, who negotiated the deal with Terry Bird, said: “Pitched somewhere between The Wicker Man and Kidulthood, Community taps into a very modern, mainly urban fear, whipped up by sensationalist media, of a drug-fuelled youth, out of control and roaming the streets.”
High Point’s Carey Fitzgerald added, “We are delighted to be on board with New Town Films and look forward to a productive working relationship together.”
High Point will introduce the project to buyers at the forthcoming EFM in Berlin.
