Deals have also closed with the Middle East (Eagle Films), Turkey (Daro), Greece (Feelgood), Israel (United King), South Africa (Daro), Thailand (M Pictures), Malaysia (Suraya) and the Phillippines (Solar).
As previously reported Anchor Bay and Bleiberg will unite on Kill ‘Em All, John! starring Steve Austin, which is set to shoot later this summer.
