Take Down sells for Radiant
Mimi Steinbauer has shown first footage in Cannes.
Buyers have been flocking to Radiant International’s Take Down, which is set to start shooting on June 2.
The story of rich kids who fight back when their remote boot camp colony comes under siege has gone in the Middle East (Gulf) and Portugal (Lusomundo).
Square One is understood to have picked up German rights, although Steinbauer could not be reached to confirm. A Company picked up CIS and Eastern Europe before the market.
