Armed with a new promo, Myriad Pictures closed a number of key territory deals for Kevin Spacey-Jeremy Irons-Zachary Quinto financial thriller “Margin Call” during the American Film Market.

“Margin Call,” in post, stars Stanley Tucci, Demi Moore, Paul Bettany, Penn Badgley, Simon Baker and Mary McDonnell.

Myriad prexy-CEO Kirk D’Amico debuted the project at the Cannes film market in May. At AFM, he showed footage for the first time to foreign buyers.
