Open Road has come on to handle US distribution on The Tank.

Kellie Madison is scheduled to commence directing in April in Ohio.

Glacier Films’ Tove Christensen, Sarik Andreasyan, and Vladimir Poliakov are producing alongside Steven Schneider.

The thriller follows the fate of six people who enter an isolation tank designed to simulate a trip to Mars.

Tom Ortenberg (pictured) and Elliott Kleinberg of Open Road negotiated the deal in Berlin with Ben Weiss of Paradigm.
