Los Angeles-based Inferno Entertainment has virtually sold out the upcoming adventure epic The Lost City Of Z, its marquee title that is being lined up for Brad Pitt and director James Gray.
In the latest instance of a US major filling the international pipeline with independent product, Warner Bros International Film Acquisitions chief Camela Galano chief acquired rights for France and Germany.
The list of heavyweight list of buyers continues with Entertainment for the UK, DeaPlaneta for Spain, Central Partnership for CIS, Studio Solutions for Taiwan, Scanbox for Scandinavia and Iceland, and Swen for Latin America.
Italia licensed rights for the Middle East, Turkey and India, Filmopolis took Greece, and Revolutionary Releasing acquired Eastern Europe.
Inferno executives are fielding offers for Italy and Asia and said a deal was imminent in the Benelux.
Gray has adapted David Grann’s bestseller about the true adventures of the early 20th century British explorer Colonel Percy Harrison Fawcett, a former soldier who believed a magnificent lost civilisation lived in the Amazon interior.
Pitt would produce through his Plan B Entertainment and Inferno co-founders Bill Johnson and Jim Seibel would serve as executive producers.
Johnson also disclosed several key sales on Arabian Nights. Entertainment took the UK, Hoyts Australia, TF1 France, and Tele-München Germany.
The deals were concluded at AFM last year but have not been announced before.
