Redbus books ‘9th Passenger’

Co. also picks up, to exec produce 'Madhouse'

LONDON — Redbus Pictures has greenlit $10 million horror pic “The 9th Passenger,” to be directed by Ellory Elkayam (“Eight-Legged Freaks”), with Lakeshore Entertainment handling international sales.

Redbus has also picked up U.K., French and Australian rights to another Lakeshore horror project, “Madhouse,” and will take an exec producer credit on the movie.

These deals follow the success of Redbus Film Distribution’s chiller “Cabin Fever,” which has grossed £1.7 million ($2.5 million) in the U.K.

“Redbus has clearly established itself as the leader in this genre in the U.K., with past horror successes such as ‘The Gift,’ ‘Jeepers Creepers’ and ‘The Mothman Prophecies,’ ” said Redbus Pictures chief exec Zygi Kamasa. “It made absolute sense to fast-track ‘9th Passenger’ into production for a theatrical release at the end of next year.”

“The 9th Passenger” is the story of eight students stranded on a yacht, with a mysterious ninth passenger who may or may not exist. It is scheduled to shoot next March in South Africa, with Peter Shaw of UBA producing alongside Kamasa and his Redbus partner Simon Franks.
