EXCLUSIVE: Ryan Kampe’s Visit Films has acquired world sales rights to M Blash’s The Wait starring Jena Malone and Chloë Sevigny.

Kampe is showing footage at the AFM and has closed a deal with Regency Media for Australian and New Zealand.

The Wait charts what happens when a mysterious phone call from a psychic plunges a family into a state of suspended belief while waiting for their recently deceased mother to be resurrected. Luke Grimes also stars.

Neil Kopp, Ryan Crisman, Riel Roch Decter and David Guy Levy produced and Olympus Pictures served as executive producer on the film, which is in post and expected to be ready early next year.

“I love when a director can take strong talent and drama and infuse it with the supernatural,” said Kampe.

“These are the films that audiences remember and stand out in the marketplace. Blash’s eye and his use of Jena and Chloe add to the allure of this project.”
