EXCLUSIVE: Highland Film Group has teamed up with Anchor Bay UK to handle sales on three genre titles on the Croisette.
The films are World War Dead, We Still Kill The Old Way, and Age Of Kill.
World War Dead stars Ray Panthaki, Wendy Glenn and Kacey Barnfield in the tale of a TV documentary crew who uncover an undead army while shooting on the site of the notorious WWI battle the Somme.
Revenge thriller We Still Kill The Old Way from director Sacha Bennett follows a group of London gangsters on a vigilante killing spree when one of their own ends up dead. Ian Ogilvy, James Cosmo, Nicky Henson, Adele Silva and Dani Dyer lead the cast.
Age Of Kill centres on a disgraced black ops sniper with six hours to eliminate six targets in order to prevent the death of his kidnapped son. Martin Kemp stars and Jonathan Sothcott is the producer.
“We couldn’t find a more perfect fit than the talented team at Highland Film Group to represent our first three local productions,” said Anchor Bay director of acquisitions Rod Smith.
“Their drive, passion and understanding of the market and our films make them a go-to destination for all international buyers, and we look forward to working with them.”
“We are so pleased to be working with Anchor Bay UK on these three standout genre films as both their films and the company encapsulate the same creative spirit we strive to represent,” said Highland CEO Arianne Fraser and president of international sales Delphine Perrier.
Highland’s Cannes slate includes Kelvin Tong’s new horror Email, Kevin Connolly’s The Wright Girls starring Jessica Alba and Sanctuary from director Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego.
Charles Roven’s Atlas Independent produced the last two titles.
