International buyers take The Devil’s Hand
Screen Daily, 28 July 2014
EXCLUSIVE: Cinema Management Group has licensed the Rufus Sewell horror-thriller from Mickey Liddell’s LD Entertainment in a slew of markets.
Roadside Attractions has earmarked an October 10 US release for 'The Devil’s Hand', formerly 'Where The Devil Hides', about six girls in a small village who were born on the same day nearly 18 years ago and start to disappear. While village edlers claim a hellish prophecy may be about to come true, some suspect other forces may be at work.
Edward Noeltner’s Cinema Management Group has closed deals in the UK (Kaleidoscope), Canada (Mongrel Media), Scandinavia (Another World), the Middle East (Front Row) and Turkey (Sinema).
Rights also went in the Philippines (Pioneer Films), Vietnam (BHD Distribution), Mexico and pan-Latin American pay-TV (Alebrije) and Argentina, Chile, Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador (BF Distribution).
Sewell stars alongside Alycia Debnam Carey, Adelaide Kane, Leah Pipes, Thomas McDonell and Jennifer Carpenter. Lionsgate will release 'The Devil’s Hand' on VOD, EST, DVD and TV platforms.
Christian E Christiansen directed from the screenplay by Karl Mueller. Liddell produces with Jennifer Monroe and Pete Shilaimon, while the executive producers are Paddy Cullen and Scott Holroyd.
Noeltner and Liddell are longtime collaborators and CMG handled sales on The Collector and The Collection, among others. “This is our sixth feature with Mickey and his team at LD Entertainment that we have been able to effectively license internationally,” said Noeltner.
“They consistently produce edge-of-your-seat, scary horror films for a worldwide audience. We feel fortunate at CMG to have this great relationship with a company that tops itself each and every time making terrific horror thrillers.”
