Lightning Entertainment has acquired international sales rights excluding Switzerland to Tarantula Productions’ police thriller Verso.
Lightning co-president Richard Guardian will commence sales at AFM on the story directed by Xavier Ruiz about a Swiss SWAT officer who fears for his teenage daughter’s safety when his former partner gets out of jail.
Laurent Lucas, Carlos Leal, Chloe Coulloud and Andres “STRESS” Andrekson star. Ruiz also co-wrote the screenplay with Nicholas Cuthbert and produced the film with Donato Rotunno.
Ascot-Elite is releasing the film in Switzerland in late November. Recreation Media is handling US sales for the film.
Guardian brokered the deal with Ariel Veneziano of Recreation Media.
