Spain's Film Factory Takes Int'l 'Saint' Rights

Dutch director Dick Mass' new horror film about a murderous bishop.


MADRID -- Film Factory Entertainment announced Wednesday it has picked up international rights outside of North America for Dutch director Dick Mass' latest film, Saint. Los Angeles-based XYZ Films will handle sales for the U.S. and Canada.

Egbert-Jan Weeber leads the cast in a twisted horror film of Saint Nicholas, a fallen bishop who slaughters children every Dec. 5, produced by Tom de Mol Productions and Parachute Pictures.

"Saint is a very original film which perfectly suits the slate of genre films that we want to bring to the marketplace," said Film Factory chief Vicente Canales. "The high level of production and breathtaking action sequences make this a surprising horror film and pure entertainment."

The newly launched Film Factory will screen the film at the European Film Market as part of its first sales slate.
