Indiecan Entertainment has picked up Canadian rights from the producers to Raven Banner sales title American Badger ahead of its European premiere at Frightfest in the UK on Saturday (March 6).
Kirk Caouette directed the story about an assassin hired to befriend a prostitute who is then instructed to kill her.
Indiecan CEO Avi Federgreen brokered the deal with Caouette and Raven Banner Entertainment, who represent the international sales.
The distributor has also acquired Marc Price’s Nightshooters for North America. The film centres on filmmakers on the run from violent criminals after they inadvertently witness a gangland execution.
Jean-Paul Ly (Jailbreak, 400 Bullets) star in the film, which premiered at 2018 Raindance. Federgreen negotiated the deal with Nancy Lanham at Lightning Entertainment, producer Michelle Parkyn at Dead Pixel Productions, and Unstable Ground’s Justin McConnell.
