A Little Bit Zombie gets a little bit of distribution
The deals see Ascot-Elite distribute Casey Walker's rom-zom-com to German theatres in 2013 while New Select acquired the film's Japanese home entertainment rights.
Casey Walker’s A Little Bit Zombie has been picked up by Germany’s Ascot-Elite Entertainment Group and Japan’s New Select.
The deals, which were signed during the Toronto International Film Festival, will see Ascot-Elite distribute the film theatrically in Germany/Benelux in 2013, and New Select acquiring Japanese home entertainment rights.
The rom-zom-com stars an all-Canadian cast including Shawn Roberts, Kristopher Turner, Crystal Lowe, Kristen Hager, Emilie Ullerup and Stephen McHattie.
A Little Bit Zombie was co-written by Christopher Bond and Trevor Martin, and produced by Walker, John Griffith, Tyman Stewart and Dave Watson of Cave Painting Pictures.
The film has garnered a slew of awards on the genre and international festival circuit. In April, DVD rights were picked up by Anchor Bay Entertainment Canada, and Phase Four Films picked up U.S. home entertainment rights in July.
