eOne has completed a multi-picture deal with Inferno Entertainment, securing Canadian rights for the Jason Statham action film The Killer Elite and Australian hit Tomorrow When The War Began.
Australia’s OmniLab Media produced and Inferno Entertainment handled sales on both films. Killer Elite stars Statham as a former Navy SEAL who battles a renegade SAS operative. Robert De Niro and Clive Owen also star.
Michael Boughen is producing through Omnilab’s Australian production arm Ambience Entertainment and Inferno Entertainment is handling international sales on the project.
Tomorrow When The War Began is based on the first of seven books by John Marsden and follows a group of high school friends who must fight a hostile military force and is the highest grossing Australian release of the year-to-date on more than $13m.
eOne’s Lara Thompson and Kimberley Fox of Inferno brokered the deal.
