This morning ScreenDaily shared the first sales trailers for two of Devilworks’ upcoming slate, while they have details on a few more that are heading into the European Film Market (EFM) at the Berlin Film Festival (Feb 9-19).
The Man Who Was Thursday, the feature debut of Hungarian filmmaker Balazs Juszt, is a historical thriller chronicling a man’s Faustian descent into the Roman underworld. It stars François Arnaud (The Borgais, I Killed My Mother) and Ana Ularu (Inferno, Emerald City). The film was inspired by the novel of the same name from English author G.K. Chesterton.
Population Zero, co-directed by Julian T. Pinder and Adam Lewis, is a docu-thriller about a trio of murders in Yellowstone National Park in 2009. The film explores how, despite a man confessing to the crime, an American constitutional loophole allowed him to walk free. The film had its international premiere at London’s FrightFest in 2016 and will be released in spring 2017 by Icon.
Peelers, from director-editor Sevé Schelenz (SKEW), stars Wren Walker as a small town strip club owner who must defend her bar from violent zombies. The film screened at Sitges in 2016
Still Alive, previously titled Paralytic, is from director Joey Johnson (Shadowed). It tells the story of a famed contract hitman who takes vengeance on a powerful drug cartel after the murder of his lover. Devilworks acquired the film at AFM 2016.
