EXCLUSIVE: Paris-based WTFilms has sold Indonesian martial arts drama The Golden Cane Warrior to Well Go USA for North America.
WTFilms announced that it had picked up the film in association with Backup Media at Hong Kong Filmart in March. It has since also been sold to Focus Entertainment for Korea and MovieCloud for Taiwan.
Directed by Ifa Isfansyah and produced by Mira Lesmana, the film tells the story of two student fighters who, after their master is killed, set out to find the Golden Cane relic before it falls into the wrong hands.
The film is set to screen at this year’s Fantasia International Film Festival (July 14-August 4) in Montreal.
WTFilms has also picked up international right to Japanese filmmaker Sion Sono’s Love & Peace, which recently received its world premiere at the Beijing International Film Festival.
The film stars Hiroki Hasegawa as a failed musician who is transformed into a full-blown rock star when he buys a little turtle that swallows a magic pill. The turtle ends up turning into a monster that terrorises Tokyo. Asmik Ace is releasing the fantasy comedy in Japan next month.
