Los Angeles-based Myriad Pictures has come on board to handle international sales on Fantasia International Film Festival selection Undergods.
Chino Moya’s fantasy feature directorial debut stars Géza Röhrig (Son Of Saul, To Dust) and Kate Dickie (Game Of Thrones, The Witch) and takes place in a future-set Europe where individual vignettes and recollections of a shared nightmarish past intertwine.
Burn Gorman, Johann Myers, Michael Gould, Hayley Carmichael, Ned Dennehy, Khalid Abdalla, Eric Gordon, and Tanya Reynolds round out the cast.
Producers are the UK’s Z56FILM in co-production with Velvet Films from Belgium, Homeless Bob Production from Estonia, Media Plus from Serbia, Filmgate Films of Sweden, and Ridley Scott Creative Group’s Black Dog Films, RSA Films, and Scott Free Films.
Undergods was made with the support of BFI (using funds from the National Lottery), Wallonia Brussels Fund for Audiovisual and Cinema, Estonian Cultural Fund, Estonian Film Institute, Sweden’s Film I Vast, in association with the UK’s Sharp House.
Myriad Pictures SVP of distribution and acquisitions Scott Bedno said Undergods was “visually stunning and perfectly reflects our moment in time”.
