The first film to be co-financed under Relativity’s deal with China-US entity will be the comedy 21 And Over, which commenced shooting in August and moved to Linyi in China on Oct 26.
Sky Land is the joint venture announced in August between Relativity, SAIF Partners and IDG China Media.
Sky Land’s strategic alliance with Huaxia Film Distribution Company, one of the Chinese government’s official distribution agencies, gives Relativity a potential distribution slot in China.
21 And Over stars Miles Teller, Justin Chon, Skylar Astin and Sarah Wright in the story of a debauched 21st birthday celebration.
Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman are producing alongside Andy Yan of SAIF and Hugo Shong of IDG.
The Relativity and Sky Land production is being made in association with Richard Branson’s Virgin Produced.
