Sylvester Stallone action sci-fi Little America has been a big seller for AGC International at the EFM, with major independents taking territories.

Deals have closed for France (Metropolitan), Germany and Switzerland (Leonine), Italy (Wild Bunch), pan-Latin America, Spain and Portugal (Sun Distribution), CIS (Parakeet), and Middle East (Selim Ramia).

AGC Studios is producing Little America with Balboa Productions and Platinum Dunes is executive producer. Writer-director Rowan Athale (Wasteland, Outside The Wire, Way Down) flew into Berlin to meet buyers and production is scheduled to begin in summer.

The story takes place in a future where China owns the United States and a former operative is hired by a Chinese billionaire to extract his daughter from a ghetto.

Negotiations are ongoing this week with the few remaining territories. AGC’s president of worldwide distribution Michael Rothstein announced the deals at the EFM on Monday (24).

The company partners with CNN Films on upcoming documentary features Ladyboss: The Jackie Collins Story and John Lewis: Good Trouble in post-production; and with Roland Emmerich on action sci-fi Moonfall. It is in pre-production on horror thriller Geechee starring Andrea Riseborough, and partners on the TV adaptation of Gabriel García Márquez’s News Of A Kidnapping for Amazon Studios.
