Content Media will commence international sales in Berlin next week on John Suits’ sci-fi action-thriller starring Rachel Nichols, Mekhi Phifer and Missi Pyle.
Pandemic adopts the first-person shooter perspective and takes place in the near future as a doctor travels to Los Angeles in search of a cure to a devastating virus. Dustin T Benson wrote the screenplay.
Content film president Jamie Carmichael will show footage in Berlin and described the project as a potential game changer.
“The FPS component immerses the viewer right into heart the film – in a hybrid gamer style,” said Carmichael. “We’re incredibly impressed with John and Gabriel’s inventive work.”
Alfie Allen, Danielle Rose Russell, Paul Guilfoyle and Pat Healy round out the key cast.
Gabriel Cowan produced the film with Suits through their New Artists Alliance (NAA) label alongside the film’s North American distributor XLrator Media.
The partnership marks the second in a three-film deal between the parties after 400 Days, which Content also sells.
Danny Roth and Damiano Tucci of Parkside Pictures serve as executive producers with Michael Tadross Jr of Tadross Media Group and Carmichael.
Content’s sales slate heading into Berlin includes Alex Gibney’s controversial Sundance selection Going Clear: Scientology And The Prison Of Belief, rom-com Comet starring Justin Long and Emmy Rossum and horror tale The Diabolical with Ali Larter.
The roster continues with Martin Freeman and Anthony LaPaglia in The Eichmann Show and Oscar Wilde’s The Canterville Ghost voice by Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie.
