Pure Flix has struck a pan-Latin America television and DVD rights deal excluding Brazil with Sun Distribution for 2014 US box office breakout God’s Not Dead.
“Sun has incredible penetration into the Latin American market and will be a perfect partner to take God’s Not Dead into those territories,” said Ron Gell, vp of international sales and distribution for Pure Flix.
“The company will work alongside our existing theatrical distributor, Arturo Allen’s CanZion Films, and longtime Brazilian partner Ygor Siqueira’s Graca Films.”
Gell brokered the deal with Sun CEO Diego Halabi.
God’s Not Dead has amassed more than $58m in North America in nine weeks.
