EXCLUSIVE: CEO Brian O’Shea has struck a deal to handle international sales in Cannes on producer Steven Schneider’s horror film, which Open Road will distribute in the US.

The Tank follows six test subjects placed in an isolation tank for a Mars mission simulation. Kellie Madison wrote the screenplay and makes her feature directorial debut.

Producing alongside Schneider are Glacier Films, the company that Hayden Christensen (pictured), Tove Christensen, Sarik Andreasyan, Gevond Andreasyan, Georgy Malkov, Vladimir Poliakov launched one year ago and is backed by Russia’s Renovatio.

“The Exchange is excited to work with an incredibly successful producer like Steven Schneider,” said O’Shea.

The Tank is the kind of picture he specialises in. People better not stand in its way — The Tank is poised to charge up the box office charts.”
