Exclusive Films International head Alex Walton has reported a deluge of interest here on the Miley Cyrus action comedy So Undercover.
Walton has closed a raft of deals on the film, which stars Cyrus as an FBI agent who infiltrates a college sorority and has just wrapped principal photography. US buyers are circling and a domestic deal is expected soon.
Deals have closed with Germany (Constantin), France (Metropolitan), Australia (Roadshow), Russia (West), Latin America (California), Scandinavia (Svensk), Benelux (Independent) and Eastern Europe (SPI).
“Miley is a worldwide phenomenon as a TV star, musician and fashion figure and the market has proved she has great value in film to our distributors,” Walton said.
Tom Vaughan directed So Undercover and the key cast includes Jeremy Piven, Mike O’Malley and Kelly Osbourne.
Walton’s EFM slate includes George Clooney’s political drama Ides Of March — which sold last week to eOne in the UK, Tobis in Germany and Metropolitan in France, among others — as well as Martin Scorsese’s Untitled George Harrison Documentary and Hammer Films production The Woman In Black starring Daniel Radcliffe.
