German distributor Constantin Film has acquired all rights to Hong Kong action thriller Eye In The Sky from Fortissimo Films.

Fortissimo, which picked the film up on the eve of Hong Kong Filmart at the end of March, also recently sold it to French distributor ARP Selection.

The Sundream Motion Pictures production is the directorial debut of award-winning scriptwriter Yau Nai Hoi. The story follows a crack squad from the Hong Kong police force's most secretive and elite branch, the Criminal Intelligence Bureau (CIB), as they track down a criminal mastermind.

The German deal, which marks Fortissimo's first collaboration with Constantin, was completed by Fortissimo's co-chairman Wouter Barendrecht and Constantin's Head of Licensing/Acquisitions Yoko Higuchi.
