LONDON — Synergy Cinema has snapped up French rights to “Iron Sky,” from helmer Timo Vuorensola.

Pic, which is being shopped at the American Film Market by Stealth Media Group, sees the Nazis set up a secret base on the moon in 1945, where they hide out and plan to return to power in 2018.

It stars Julia Dietze, Christopher Kirby and Gotz Otto.

Pic has already sold to a number of territories including Blighty (Revolver), Australia and New Zealand (Hoyts), Germany and Benelux (Splendid), China (E Stars) and Scandinavia (Buena Vista).

It has also sold to former Yugoslavia (Discover Film), Taiwan (Cherry Sky), Czech and Slovak republics (Filmpark), Thailand (Media Film) and Romania (Programs4Media).

Synergy, founded by former Gaumont execs Yves Chevalier and Loic Trocme, snapped up French rights in Santa Monica this weekend.

Stealth’s slate also includes Mark Pellington’s “I Melt With You,” John McNaughton’s “Shoedog” and Ash Baron Cohens’ “Blind Bastard Club.”
