It’s unclear how many horror elements will be included, but the concept for Phase 4’s newly acquired Philosophers is pretty rad.
The distributor has acquired all rights in the US and Canada to John Huddles’ sci-fi thriller starring James Darcy, says Screen Daily. Bankside Films handles international sales on the Croisette.
“The Philosophers centers on a philosophy teacher at an international school in Jakarta who challenges his graduate class of 20 to elect which 10 they would send into an underground shelter in the event of a nuclear apocalypse.”
Sophie Lowe, Daryl Sabara, Freddie Stroma, Rhys Wakefield and Bonnie Wright star.
