EXCLUSIVE: UK distributor nabs US sci-fi from Independent.


Metrodome Distribution has picked up UK and Irish rights to US sci-fi horror Coherence from Independent.

Writer-director James Ward Byrkit’s feature debut follows a dinner party disrupted by a power failure and other troubling events.

Emily Foxler, Nicholas Brendon, Hugo Armstrong, Lauren Maher star in the low-budget horror, which was a hit on limited release in the US for Oscilloscope and recently had its European premiere at the Edinburgh Film Festival. Producer is Lene Bausager.

The deal was negotiated by Metrodome head of acquisitions Giles Edwards and Independent’s head of sales Abigail Walsh.

Director Byrkit, a writer and storyboard artist on Rango, has recently developed Fraggle Rock: The Movie and Wake.
