High Point Television, a division of UK-based sales company High Point Media Group, has sold the North American TV and video rights for Storm Force to MTI.

The Belgian helicopter-rescue action film, starring Kevin Janssen, is produced by Peter Bouckaert of MMG Film & Television.

High Point also sold the film to Latin America (America Video Film), Taiwan (Jiant) and China (DD Dream).

'It's a widely held philosophy that action films are the birthright of exclusively English language territories,' High Point's Carey Fitzgerald said. 'But Storm Force is a strong example of good, solid film-making which flies in the face of such received wisdom.'
