101 Films International will share the script and assets with buyers at next week’s American Film Market.
This is director Anyiam-Osigwe’s sophomore feature after No Shade.
Emmanuel Anyiam-Osigwe said: “Everyone at BUFF Originals is delighted to welcome such a plethora of British and American talent on board. We have an exciting mix of youth and experience, and we’re primed and ready to commence sales at AFM”.
