Back in February a press release was sent out confirming that Hayden Christensen had joined the cast of a new Nazi themed zombie horror called Untot, and the details explained that the film would be heading to Cannes looking for buyers.

Screen Daily confirms that the horror film has been sold at Cannes, and has sold well.

Per Screen Daily:

13 Films has sold multiple territories on action horror film Untöt starring Hayden Christensen.

Kaleidoscope Film Distribution will distribute in the UK and Splendid has acquired German and Benelux rights to the story of a Second World War German Army unit that encounters an undead force in a secret weapons facility.

13 Films president Tannaz Anisi also announced further deals in South Korea (Sookie Pictures), the Middle East (Eagle Films), Tanweer (Indonesia), Red Pictures (Malaysia) and South Africa (Ster-Kinekor).

Video game producer-director Kris Renkewitz makes his feature film debut and Greg O’Connor of Solaris Entertainment produces Untöt.

“We are thrilled with the positive response from overseas buyers on Untöt,” said Anisi. “Hayden Christensen has commercial appeal and Renkewitz has crafted a chilling and suspenseful tale which will leave audiences on the edge of their seat once this story is brought to life.”

UNTÖT, meaning “undead” in German, is set towards the end of World War II in December 1944. During a blizzard an elite military unit headed by Lt. Fredrick Hank (Christensen) is dropped behind enemy lines in the mountains of Poland to destroy a secret Nazi weapons facility. The soldiers must face their greatest fears when they encounter something they could never have been trained for: the undead.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
