Worldview Entertainment has joined IM Global’s Octane division on Ti West’s horror-thriller. Octane will introduce the project to international buyers in Toronto and CAA represents domestic rights.
Eli Roth (pictured) will present The Sacrament and produce alongside Worldview CEO Christopher Woodrow and COO Molly Conners as well as Jacob Jaffke and Peter Phok.
Worldview’s Maria Cestone, Sarah Johnson Redlich and Hoyt David Morgan will serve as executive producers alongside Eric Newman, West and IM Global CEO Stuart Ford.
Principal photography is scheduled to begin in late September in Georgia. The producers are keeping plot points under wraps.
Worldview recently wrapped Guillaume Canet’s crime thriller Blood Ties starring Clive Owen and Atom Egoyan’s West Memphis Three biopic Devil’s Knot starring Colin Firth and Reese Witherspoon. The company is in post on James Gray’s untitled period drama with Marion Cotillard, Joaquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner.
