London-based sales company Lumina Films will be handlingthe worldwide rights (including UK) for supernatural thriller Reverb.

The film is being handled by Lumina's thriller label PanicAttack.

Reverb stars rising UK actors Leo Gregory, Eva Birthistle, Margo Stilley andLuke de Woolfson. The project is in post-production,eyeing an autumn festival launch.

The film centres on anall-night session at a recording studio, where a group of musicians sample atrack from a dead rock musician, inadvertently summoning evil powers.

The Swipe Films production waswritten and directed by EitanArrusi (who previously wrote Long Time Dead) and produced by Swipe's Frank Mannion.The budget, of less than $1m, was privately funded, with partial financingthrough Lumin's Monaco-based parent InternationalFilm Collective.

Music supervisor Ian Neil, who previously worked on 24 Hour Party People and Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, willuse original tracks from artists including Jackknife Lee and Tunng, both represented by Lumina's sister music label FullTime Hobby Records.

Lumina Films head Samantha Horley said:"I have been amazed at the production levels achieved on such a humble budget, and with a seriously cool Brit soundtrack too. Eitan and Frank have done an extraordinary job and I thinkthere are a few filmmakers out there, still trying to make films at inflatedbudget levels, who'd do well to take a look at theirmodel."
