Directed by Fansu Njie from a script he co-wrote with Stisen and Andreas Vasshaug, Last Man Down centers on John Wood (Stisen), a man who chose to leave civilization following a global pandemic and the brutal murder of his wife. Carrying the potential cure, Maria (Kent) is hunted by violent mercenaries. After stumbling upon John’s cabin, the two must team up to fight off the lethal threat together.
The film was produced by Fansu Film and Daniel Stisen Productions. Miriam Elchanan, president of sales and acquisitions negotiated the deal on behalf of Fabrication Films, while Steve Break, Saban Film’s acquisition consultant, negotiated on behalf of Saban.
