Berlin: A24 Scores Major Deals on 'Hereditary' Director Ari Aster's Next Horror Film
The film stars Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor and Will Poulter.
With Hereditary having scared up a global box office in excess of $80 million, director Ari Aster's follow-up project has become a hot ticket for A24, which has sold several major territories ahead of the European Film Market in Berlin.
The currently untitled Scandinavia-set horror — starring Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor and Will Poulter — is about a summer vacation that goes horribly wrong. It has been sold to Entertainment Film in the U.K., Village Roadshow for Australia/New Zealand, Weltkino for Germany/Austria, IDC for Latin America and Nordisk for Scandinavia.
Other sales include Dutch FilmWorks for Benelux, DeAPlaneta for Spain, Challan for South Korea, Volga for CIS/Baltics, Tanweer for Greece, ECS for the Middle East, Sahamongkol for Thailand and Cinemaxx for Indonesia.
The film is produced by Lars Knudsen, who also produced Hereditary (which is A24's highest-grossing film to date), alongside Patrik Andersson for B-Reel Films.
