Beyond Films has sold Murray Fahey's Australian thriller Cubbyhouse, which goes into production on August 7, to a raft of Asian distributors including Mongkol Cinema in Thailand and Global Film Distributors in India.
The film has also gone to Speeding Video Distribution in Malaysia, Sunny Films in Singapore and World Television Corporation in Japan. US rights were previously sold to Trimark Pictures.
In addition, Joshua Leonard (The Blair Witch Project) has joined the film's cast alongside local actors Belinda McClory, Lauren Hewett, Jerome Ehlers and Craig McLachlan.
Cubbyhouse is about an LA family which relocates to the Queensland Gold Coast only to find that the derelict children's playhouse at the bottom of the garden houses a demonic presence. The Australian Film Finance Corporation, the Pacific Film and Television Commission and the Premium Movie Partnership are backing the film.
Beyond's Mikael Borglund and Gary Hamilton are executive producing with Chris Brown and David Hannay producing. Murray Fahey has written the script with Ian Coughlan.
