Vertigo Releasing has acquired UK rights to zombie musical Anna And The Apocalypse after sealing a deal with Amp International.
The film follows a group of friends who must fight – and sing – their way through a zombie invasion. It premiered at Fantastic Fest in 2017 and won Sitges’ Best Midnight X-Treme Feature Length Film prize.
Vertigo is plotting a wide theatrical UK release later this year to coincide with the North American release from Orion Pictures, the new Us marketing and distribution company launched by Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM).
Vertigo CEO Rupert Preston said: “This is an incredibly original and entertaining film that audiences across the UK will love and devour!”
Amp International has also sold the title to Japan (Pony Canyon), German-speaking Europe and Benelux (Splendid), Middle East (Front Row), Taiwan (MovieCloud), and Latin America (MGM).
Pan-Asian TV rights have gone to Fox Asia.
