More than 37 territories sold on Bruce Willis sci-fi; strong sales for other K5 titles.
Bruce Willis sci-fi title Vice is on the verge of selling out with more than 37 countries snapping up the film in just under a week at the European Film Market (EFM) in Berlin.
Sales on Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films’ Vice, produced by Randall Emmett, George Furla and Adam Goldworm, stretched across Scandinavia, Russia, Benelux, Japan, China, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Thailand, Israel, Portugal, Russia, Czech/Slovak, Airlines, and France.
These added to previously announced deals in Germany, Poland, Ex Yugoslavia, Latin America, Middle East, Turkey, Greece, and India.
Willis stars alongside Ambyr Childers and Thomas Jane in the sci-fi to be directed by Brian A. Miller. Written by Andre Fabrizio and Jeremy Passmore, Vice begins shooting in Alabama in March.
The film is set on a futuristic resort where synthetic humans serve the rich who live out their darkest fantasies.
K5 Media Capital is financing the feature alongside Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films.
K5 also saw solid sales on its Simon Helberg comedy We’ll Never Have Paris; Neil LaBute’s Matthew Broderick and Alice Eve starrer Dirty Weekend; Fast & Furious spoofSuperfast from The Safran Company; and its gem documentary feature Next Goal Wins from Archer’s Mark and Agile Films.
“K5 has just recorded its best ever market. It has been a very successful Berlin for us,” said K5’s Oliver Simon and Daniel Baur.
They added: “We feel like we’re in a strong position to take this momentum forward to the Cannes Marché in May.”
