Content Film has acquired international rights to the sci-fi thriller starring Brandon Routh and Caity Lotz and will show first footage to buyers in Toronto.
Matt Osterman directs the thriller from New Artists Alliance and North American distributor XLrator Media about astronauts who agree to take part in a simulated mission that may not be all that it seems. Dane Cook and Ben Feldman round out the key cast.
Gabriel Cowan and John Suits of New Artists Alliance are producing 400 Days, which is currently in post.
“Matt, Gabriel and John have done an outstanding job on 400 Days – it’s just the kind of high-concept, sci-fi horror that can really break out,” said Content Film president Jamie Carmichael.
“Matt has penned a mind-bending screenplay that reminds us why we make movies to begin with,” said NAA’s Cowan. “Its complete sense of awe, mystery, and character grabbed us right away. And the crazy reality is that NASA and the European Space Agency are conducting these types of psychological experiments in preparation for the manned mission to Mars right now.”
Content’s sales slate include Oscar Wilde’s The Canterville Ghost voiced by Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie; drama Life At These Speeds starring Billy Crudup, AnnaSophia Robb and Sam Rockwell; spy thriller Newcomer; and horror tale The Diabolical starring Ali Larter.
