Sunac Culture has acquired Chinese rights to Mad Max creator George Miller’s upcoming fantasy romance epic Three Thousand Years Of Longing.
Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton are set to star in the feature, which is expected to shoot in Australia, London, and Istanbul and whose storyline remains something of a mystery.
Miller, whose credits include the Happy Feet franchise and enjoyed commercial and critical success with multiple Oscar winner and 2015 release Mad Max: Fury Road, will produce with Doug Mitchell.
CAA Media Finance brokered the deal with Sunac Culture and recently closed a deal with MGM for North American rights.
FilmNation handled international sales and launched pre-sales at the AFM 2018.
