Announced via Variety way back in March, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones’ Automatik Entertainment is selling Ends of the Earth, a found footage action-thriller co-directed by first-time feature helmers Derek Lee and Clif Prowse, at this week’s Cannes market.
The pic was shot all around Europe as it aims to blur the lines between documentary and narrative film. In it, “Best friends Clif and Derek are looking for adventure on their round-the-world trip. After an encounter with a mysterious woman Derek undergoes a horrifying blood-thirsty transformation, and their terror-inducing voyage takes them to the ends of the Earth.”
Chris Ferguson and Zach Lipovsky produced, which is backed by Telefilm Canada. Automatik swooped in to acquire the project after seeing a promo circulated by the filmmakers’ reps at Verve, which will handle domestic sales with Automatik. Alliance Films will distribute the pic in the U.K., Canada and Spain, while Stuart Ford’s IM Global will handle all other international territories.
You can see a very tiny sales image below, but it teases the film’s “discoveries”.
