Films Distribution has sold French zombie movie The Horde to IFC Films in the US and to Showgate in Japan
“What started as a small zombie movie ended up as a bestseller,” said French sales outfit Film Distribution’s Nicolas Brigaud-Robert, who added that he is close to a Korean deal.
The film, which was shown in official selection in Venice Days in Sept, is directed by Yannick Dahan and Benjamin Rocher. It follows four corrupt cops on a rampage in a condemned building who collide with hordes of bloodthirsty, cannibalistic creatures.
Films Distribution’s slate also includes Happy Ever After, starring Sally Hawkins, Daniel Monzon’s Cell 211, animation Eleanor’s Secret, Cedric Kahn’s Regrets and Detlev Buck’s Same Same But Different.
