It looks like another found footage flick is heading our way thanks to CBS Films. Just one day before the start of Cannes 2012, the company has snatched up US distribution rights to Ends of the Earth, an action thriller written and directed by Derek Lee and Clif Prowse.
Per Deadline the deal was done by CBS Films Co-President Wolfgang Hammer and EVP of Acquisitions & Co-Productions Scott Shooman. The film isn’t finished, but CBS Films acquired it in at a similar state as when the division bought The Woman in Black.
The film follows best friends who go on a whirlwind trip around the world. All goes well until they have an unusual encounter that will alter them forever. It is a found footage-style thriller with (Deadline hears) a vampire angle. Chris Ferguson and Zach Lipovsky produced, backed by Telefilm Canada. IM Global’s Stuart Ford, Automatik’s Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, and Alliance’s Charles Layton are the executive producers.
Ford, IM Global’s Jonathan Deckter, Kavanaugh-Jones, and Verve combined to close the deal. IM Global is handling international territories at Cannes, with Alliance holding rights in Canada, the UK, and Spain.
Look for more soon!
