[EFM '12] Alliance Films Nabs UK and Canadian Rights To Violent ‘Everly’

Marking the second major deal of the European Film Market, Alliance Films has snapped up U.K. and Canadian rights to Kate Hudson starrer Everly, which was just announced last week.

Deal is estimated to be north of $1 million and saw a number of other foreign buyers at the table, notably eOne, which was also in the final running for the female-driven actioner.

Nick Meyer’s Sierra/Affinity has been shopping the $10 million actioner, helmed by Joe Lynch, to buyers here at the fest, which sees Hudson star as a down-on-her-luck woman, stuck in her apartment, fending off waves of assassins sent by her ex, a dangerous mob boss.

Story is based on a concept created by Lynch (Wrong Turn 2, Chillerama, Knights of Badassdom). Yale Hannon penned the script, which was featured on the Hollywood Black List.

Pic, which is produced by Adam Ripp and Rob Paris’ Crime Scene Pictures, also sold to Splendid for Germany, Switzerland and Benelux for just north of $1 million. Kate Hudson
