Cannes: Arclight Films Darclight Selling 'Lost in the Pacific' Starring Brandon Routh
The Vincent Zhou-directed movie is currently in post-production.
Darclight, the genre-driven arm of international sales outfit Arclight Films, has announced the international market premiere of Lost in the Pacific, a 3D sci-fi action adventure helmed by Last Flight director Vincent Zhou.
The movie features Brandon Routh (Superman Returns) and Chinese star Zhang Yuqi (White Deer Plain), and is currently in post-production, scheduled for release later this year, starting with China.
Darclight is handling worldwide sales outside of China and will be presenting footage to international distributors for the first time in Cannes.
"The entire team, both in front of and behind the camera, has created a thrilling masterpiece that is sure to entice and exhilarate distributors and audiences all over the world," said Gary Hamilton, managing director of Arclight.
The movie follows a group of passengers stranded on a remote island in the Pacific Ocean after their luxury airliner makes an emergency landing. As they try their best to survive and figure out a way to get the plane back in the air, they soon learn the island has been overrun with strange mutated creatures.
"Huace film studio will be our main domestic distributor in China and Lost in the Pacific will be the first Chinese movie to be distributed by its own distribution department," said Zhou. "Huace is the second largest public company in the entrainment industry in China and has been developing a successful model for distribution and looks forward to the film’s release later this year."
