Double Edge finds buyers overseas
Kevin Chu’s “The Treasure Hunter” has roused buyers in Berlin, where Taiwan-based Double Edge Entertainment has racked up sales for the actioner.
Jay Chou (“Green Hornet”) and Lin Chiling (“Red Cliff”) star in the $15 million actioner about a young man trying to protect an ancient treasure from an international criminal organization.
So far the pic has sold to Splendid Film for Germany and Benelux, E1 Entertainment for the U.K. and Canada, Noori Pictures for Paramount in Japan, and Lotte in South Korea as well as CP Digital for the CIS and Baltic countries.
Steve Chicorel, Double Edge’s director of international distribution, said he expected sales to continue in and beyond Berlin.
