CEO Roman Kopelevich (pictured) has acquired international sales rights to the comedy thriller from Matthew Spradlin based on the screenplay he adapted with Barry Wernick from the graphic novel of the same name.
The story follows six children at an elite prep school who die one-by-one while serving detention over the course of a stormy afternoon.
Barry Wernick and Brad Keller produced and Camrin Agin, David Genecov, James R Hallam, Tommy G Warren and Stuart Wernick served as executive producers.
Judd Nelson plays the headmaster in a delicious full-circle following his memorable role as the rebellious high school student in John Hughes’ 1985 cult classic The Breakfast Club. The cast includes Amanda Alch, Marc Donato, Augie Duke, Roger Edwards, Ali Faulkner, Cameron Deane Stewart and Ben Browder.
“I love this film,” Kopelevich said. “This is exactly the type of movie I’d like my company to be known for – hip, cool, fun. I feel like we are part of the discovery of some extremely talented individuals who are part of this film; they are full of creativity and created a film that is a new spin on the comic book genre.”
Elsa Ramo of Law Offices of Elsa Ramo brokered the deal with Kopelevich.
