Saban Movies has picked up the North American rights to Scandinavian thriller Good Boy from Blue Finch Movies.
Written and directed by Viljar Bøe (Til Freddy), the movie stars Gard Løkke (Troll), Katrine Lovise Øpstad Fredriksen in her function movie debut and Amalie Willoch Njaastad (Cabin Loopy). Saban is focusing on a third-quarter theatrical launch.
Good Boy, which premiered to acclaim at Past Fest in 2022, follows Sigrid, who thinks she’s met the proper match in Christian till she comes to search out out that he lives with a person who acts like his pet canine. She quickly notices that there’s an insidious facet to Christian… possibly “pet play” isn’t as harmless because it appears.
The movie is produced by Marie Waade Grønning, Ane Marie Sletten and Karl Oskar Åsli, and government produced by Darren Gaskell and Nicolai Narvesen Lied. The deal was negotiated by Steve Break on behalf of Saban Movies and Mike Chapman on behalf of Blue Finch Movies, which is representing worldwide gross sales rights.
Saban lately acquired a variety of movies, together with Jon Keeyes’ The Clear Up Crew, starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Melissa Leo, and Antonio Banderas; Pierre Morel’s The Ambush, the highest-grossing Arabic-language movie ever within the UAE and Saban’s first non-English language movie acquisition; Jason Momoa’s The Final Manhunt; American Assassin starring Tom Pelphrey, Ryan Phillippe, Idina Menzel snd Jacki Weaver; Ana Lily Amirpour’s Mona Lisa and the Blood Moon starring Kate Hudson and Jun Jong-Search engine marketing; Brett Donowho’s western The Previous Approach starring Nicolas Cage; Adam Sigal’s reincarnation darkish comedy Chariot with John Malkovich; and Butcher’s Crossing, which stars Cage and had its world premiere in Toronto.
