Celluloid Nightmares has picked up international rights outside Asia to English-language action horror Dead Mine, co-produced by HBO Asia and Singapore-based Infinite Studios, reports Screen Daily.
“It tells the story of a group of treasure hunters who venture into the Indonesian jungle to search for gold looted by Japanese forces during World War II. But they find themselves under attack and trapped underground in a Japanese Imperial Army bunker.”
Directed and co-written by UK director Steven Sheil (Mum & Dad), the film stars cult Japanese action star Miki Mizuno (Bayside Shakedown), UK actors Sam Hazeldine and Les Loveday and Malaysian actress Carmen Soo.
The film, currently in post-production, marks the first time that HBO Asia has produced a feature in Asia. Celluloid Nightmares will also represent Japanese rights.
Infinite Studios, previously called Infinite Frameworks, is a production and facilities company which is constructing new studio developments in Singapore and the Indonesian island of Batam. Dead Mine was filmed on Batam, both on location and at Infinite’s sound stages.
