Saban Films Takes Death of Me Starring Maggie Q and Luke Hemsworth

-

Saban Films announced today that they have acquired North American rights to Darren Lynn Bousman’s (Saw franchise, Repo! The Genetic Opera) Death of Me. Starring Maggie Q (Nikita, Divergent franchise) and Luke Hemsworth (Thor: Ragnarok, Westworld) and from a script penned by Ari Margolis (Black Days) & James Morley III (Black Days, Intrepid) and David Tish (Blood Money).

Death of Me centers on a couple on an exotic holiday who awaken one morning with a hangover and no recollection of what transpired. When playing back the video of their previous night, they learn they participated in a ritual that somehow ended with the husband murdering the wife — though she’s actually very much alive.

“Darren has been a staple in the horror genre from early on with the Saw franchise, and we are thrilled to be partnering with him on his latest film,” said Saban Films’ Bill Bromiley. “The suspense and chemistry that Maggie and Luke bring to the screen will keep audiences enraptured through this wild ride.”

Death of Me is produced by Envision Media Arts’ Lee Nelson and David Tish, and Samuel Marshall Production’s Charlie Dorfman. Executive producers for the film’s financier Media Finance Capital are CEO David Gilbery and Marlon Vogelgesang, alongside Tannaz Anisi and Greg Schenz for 13 Films.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Saban again,” said EMA’s Lee Nelson. “They’ve proven to be a great destination for producers like us who are interested in bringing quality concept driven material to the marketplace.”

13 Films represents the foreign rights and will be presenting the film to buyers at the upcoming Toronto Film Festival having already inked a number of key deals for the film, including: Italy and Poland (Sun Films), Russia (Parakeet), Middle East (Eagle), South Korea (Mobydick), Vietnam (Galaxy), Philippines (Pioneer), Yugoslavia (Discovery) and Malaysia (Westec).
