EXCLUSIVE: Bleiberg Entertainment has boarded world rights to Karen Gillan-starrer All Creatures Here Below. A dramatic thriller, it reteams director Collin Schiffli and writer David Dastmalchian who were behind 2014 SXSW Special Jury Prize winner Animals. Bleiberg will screen the first footage to buyers in Cannes. The film is currently in post-production.
The story follows a young couple living on the fringes of LA society. An impulsive crime sets them on the run from the police and on a trajectory that will forever change their lives.
Gillan is currently in theaters with blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War and is coming off another box office hit, Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle. Dastmalchian (Blade Runner 2049) also stars and is next up in Ant-Man And The Wasp.
Supporting cast includes Jennifer Morrison (Assassination Nation), David Koechner (Anchorman), Richard Cabral (Breaking In) and John Doe (Boogie Nights).
Planeo Films’ Nacho Arenas produces along with Amy Greene (Truth, Chronic) and Chris Stinson of Live Free or Die Films (Woodshock). Greene and Stinson will be in Cannes in support of Debra Granik’s Leave No Trace, which has a berth in Directors’ Fortnight.
Planeo is currently developing Uncommon about the unbreakable bond between the youngest professional athlete to be diagnosed with Parkinson’s and his two-year-old daughter. Bleiberg’s Cannes slate includes Martin Campbell adventure film Treasure Of The 40 Thieves and Pierce Brosnan-starrerr Across The River And Into The Trees.
