The company just got the North American rights for the action comedy film Guns Akimbo starring Daniel Radcliffe.
Besides Radcliffe in the main role, the movie also has the cast of Samara Weaving, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Rhys Darby, and Ned Dennehy. In addition to Jason Lei Howden as the writer and director. Producers were Felipe Marino and Joe Neurauter from Occupant Entertainment and Tom Hern of Four Knights Film.
Hollywoodreporter.com describes the plot;
“Guns Akimbo sees a nerdy video game developer […] become the next contestant in an illegal live-streamed death match, in this dark, violent and prescient sci-fi thriller,” writes Hollywood Reporter’s Alex Ritman.
Bill Bromiley and Jonathan Saba from Saba Films made the deal with Altitude Film Sales for the rights. Altitude is handling the international rights for the filmmakers, together with Endeavor who takes care of the U.S.
“With gaming on the rise, Guns Akimbo is a timely film that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats […] Daniel is in a role you’ve never seen him in before. He and Samara shine throughout this thought-provoking take on the gaming industry’s future,” said Saban Films’ Bill Bromiley.
The film had its official world premiere in Toronto back in September.
