A24 International flies into Berlin with key sales under its belt on red-hot Hereditary director Ari Aster’s Scandinavia-set follow-up starring Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor and Will Poulter.

In a slew of marquee sales overseen by Sasha Lloyd, rights to the untitled horror have gone to Entertainment Film in the UK, Village Roadshow in Australia and New Zealand, Weltkino in Germany and Austria, Nordisk in Scandinavia, and IDC In Latin America.

Further deals closed in Switzerland (Ascot Elite), Benelux (Dutch Filmworks), Spain (DeAPlaneta), South Korea (Challan), CIS & Baltics (Volga), Greece (Tanweer), the Middle East (ECS), Thailand (Sahamongkol), and Indonesia (Cinemaxx).

A24 International’s Lloyd will continue talks with buyers at the EFM on the story about a young woman who reluctantly joins her boyfriend on a summer trip where things quickly go awry. A24 fully financed and produced and will distribute in the US this summer.

Rounding out the cast are William Jackson Harper, Vilhelm Blomgran, Archie Madekwe, and Ellora Torchia. Lars Knudsen, who also produced Hereditary, produced alongside Patrik Andersson of B-Reel Films.

Hereditary was one of the breakout hits of Sundance 2018 and went on to gross close to $80m worldwide to become A24’s highest grossing film to date.
