AFM: Takashi Miike's 'Over Your Dead Body' Lands North American Distribution
The Shout! Factory plans a cross-platform release in 2015
The deal, unveiled at AFM, has the media distributor securing digital, home entertainment, broadcast and theatrical rights to the prolific Japanese director's latest film. Shout! Factory plans a North American cross-platform release, including in all packaged media, for 2015.
Over Your Dead Body, which bowed in Toronto ahead of a festival circuit run, portrays a theater troupe rehearsing a classic play of murder, betrayal and vengeance, only to see life begin to imitate art backstage. Miike's film is screening this week at AFM.
The North American distribution deal was unveiled by Charlotte Mickie, president of Mongrel International, and Shout! Factory’s Richard Foos, Bob Emmer and Garson Foos.
