Screen Media has acquired all US rights from Millennium Media to the Megan Fox thriller Till Death and plans a summer theatrical and on-demand release.
S.K. Dale’s (horror short The Coatmaker) feature directorial debut co-stars Callan Mulvey (Russo Brothers’ upcoming The Gray Man), Eoin Macken (George RR Martin’s Nightflyers), Aml Ameen (HBO’s I May Destroy You) and Jack Roth (Medici).
Based on Jason Carvey’s screenplay that made it on to the Blood List, the yearly compilation of the best unproduced genre scripts, Till Death finds Emma (Fox) handcuffed to her dead husband after a romantic night at their lake house.
Trapped and isolated in the dead of winter, she must fight off hired killers and escape her husband’s twisted plan.
David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick (Orphan, the upcoming prequel Esther), Tanner Mobley (The Piper), Yariv Lerner (The Outpost), Les Weldon (The Expendables), Rob Van Norden (Jolt) and Millennium Media’s Jeffrey Greenstein (The Hitman’s Bodyguard) served as producers.
Millennium Media fully financed Till Death and production took place at its Bulgarian Nu Boyana studio complex last year under strict Covid protocols.
As previously announced exclusively on Screen, Millennium struck territory deals in Germany (Telepool), France (Metropolitan), Spain (Vertice 360), Italy (Vertice 360), Middle East (Eagle), Latin America (California Filmes), Scandinavia (Scanbox), Benelux (DFW) and Canada (VVS), among others.
“At a time when people need entertainment more than ever, we couldn’t be more excited to team with Screen Media again to bring the world this unique and thrilling film that will certainly be a welcomed distraction,” said Greenstein.
The collaboration is the third between Screen Media and Millennium, after last year’s acclaimed war film The Outpost, one of the top-performing films of the summer, and family drama Blackbird starring Susan Sarandon, Kate Winslet, and Sam Neil.
Seth Needle, Screen Media’s SVP of global acquisitions and co-productions, brokered the deal with Greenstein on behalf of Millennium Media.
Screen Media’s recent acquisitions include mafia thriller The Birthday Cake starring Shiloh Fernandez, Ewan McGregor, and Val Kilmer; comedy Eat Wheaties! starring Tony Hale; and Senior Moment with William Shatner, Jean Smart and Christopher Lloyd, as well as the documentary Street Gang: How We Got To Sesame Street.
