Blue Fox Entertainment has secured the North American distribution rights to French zombie thriller The Night Eats The World, just before it’s set to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. Directed by Dominique Rocher, who shot the film in both French and English language during production, the pic is slated for a late summer theatrical release.
Starring Norwegian actor Anders Danielsen Lie, the story follows Sam, who wakes one morning to find himself living in a nightmare: an army of zombies have invaded the streets of Paris and he is the lone survivor. While contemplating his bleak future and how to survive, he learns he may not be alone after all.
Dennis Lavant and Golshifteh Farahani co-star in the film which was produced by Carole Scotta of Haut et Court.
Todd Slater of Blue Fox brokered the deal with UTA on behalf of the filmmakers. WTFilms is handling international sales.
