EXCLUSIVE: The company has reported a strong response following Toronto to its sci-fi thriller starring Caity Lotz, Brandon Routh, Dane Cook and Ben Feldman.
Deals have closed with Splendid Film in Germany, Benelux and Scandinavia, New Select in Japan and Transmission Films in Australia/New Zealand.
Content screened first footage in Toronto to the thriller from New Artists Alliance and North American distributor XLrator Media.
Matt Osterman directs from his screenplay about four astronauts who agree to take part in a simulated mission that may not be all that it seems.
Gabriel Cowan and John Suits of New Artists Alliance produce 400 Days, which is in post-production.
“I’m delighted to come away with so many major territory pre-sales at our very first market for 400 Days,” said Content head of film sales Harry White.
“The enthusiasm from leading distributors is a clear indicator of the quality and commercial nature of the project. We love this elevated sci-fi / action space, and it’s clear our clients do too.”
Content’s slate includes Oscar Wilde’s The Canterville Ghost voiced by Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie; drama Life At These Speeds with Billy Crudup, AnnaSophia Robb and Sam Rockwell; Janis: Little Girl Blue directed by Amy Berg; spy thriller Newcomer starring James Floyd and Anthony LaPaglia; rom-com The Surprise; and horror title The Diabolical with Ali Larter.
Content Media recently closed a deal with Bruno Wu’s Beijing-based Seven Stars Entertainment and Media to acquire the Alive Group of companies, which brings an equity investment from Seven Stars and allows Content to distribute its film and television library to China via the Alive Group.
