US sales and distribution company Princ Films has closed a raft of deals on four features, which it introduced to buyers at the virtual Cannes market in June.
The sales are led by MMA action feature Cagefighter: Worlds Collide, written and directed by Jesse Quinones and starring Gina Gershon and former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Chuck Liddell.
The film has sold to the US and Canada (Screen Media), France (Ily Films Unlimited), German-speaking Europe (Ascot Elite), New Zealand (Sky TV), Benelux (Three Lines Pictures), CIS and Baltics (Volgafilm) and Southeast Asia pay-TV (Fox Networks Group Asia Pacific).
Princ Films has also secured agreements on Drew Thomas’ action feature The Mongolian Connection, in which an undercover FBI agent captures a mysterious operative from the Mongolian underworld and must escort him back to his country.
It has sold to the US and Canada (Gravitas Ventures), Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Moldova, Bulgaria and ex-Yugoslavia (HBO Europe), Southeast Asia pay-TV (Fox Networks Group Asia Pacific), Japan (Aya Pro) and South Korea (Jaye Entertainment).
In addition, Princ has closed a deal with German-speaking Europe (Tiberius Film) for Braden Croft’s horror thriller True Fiction and secured a further sale of Slovakian political thriller Scumbag to India (Big Tree Entertainment).
Inspired by the real-life murder of a Slovak journalist and his fiancée, Scumbag was directed by Rudolf Biermann and Mariana Cengel-Solcanská, and proved a box office hit when it was released in Slovakia in February.
Ahead of the Cannes market, which went ahead virtually this year, Princ secured a US-Canada deal with Vertical Entertainment for Julius Sevcík’s Second World War drama The Glass Room
In addition, Marie Grahtø’s psychological thriller Psychosia, which received its world premiere at last year’s Venice Critics Week, sold in Norway (Europafilm) and Brian C. Miller Richard’s mystery Lost Bayou, which debuted at Tribeca, sold to Gravitas Ventures for the US and Canada.
Gravitas has also taken David Arthur Clark’s After She Wakes for the US and Canada while Princ also sold the horror thriller – under the international title When She Wakes – to Germany (Lighthouse Home Entertainment) and Vietnam (Lightning McQueen-Skyline Media).
