Celluloid Nightmares handling sales on five pix

Partnership to roll out slate at Toronto Film Festival

Celluloid Nightmares, the foreign sales partnership between XYZ Films and Celluloid Dreams, has acquired world sales rights to a quintet of film projects starting production over the next few month and will be introducing the films to buyers at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival.

XYZ Films’ and Celluloid Nightmares’ partner Nate Bolotin noted that the slate includes filmmakers from Australia, Canada, Indonesia, Japan, Philippines, the U.K. and Ireland.

The roster of pics includes:

•”Stage Fright,” from Canada-based Serendipity Point Films. Jerome Sable directs the musical/horror film starring Meat Loaf and Minnie Driver that has a start date this month.

•Sci-fier “These Final Hours,” from first-time Australian director Zak Hilditch. Pic follows a self-obsessed young man who makes his way to the party to end all parties on the last day on Earth but ends up saving the life of a little girl. Pic will begin production in Perth, Australia in October with the support of Screen Australia.

•”Creeping Zero,” a European co-production from director Billy O’Brien scheduled to start shooting Oct. 29 in Budapest. The sci-fier will star John Boyega, Ashley Hinshaw, Eddie Marsan and Adam Deacon.

•”Killers,” a Japanese/Indonesian co-production between Guerrilla Merah Productions and Gareth Evans’ Pt. Merantau Films. It’s directed by the Mo Brothers.

•”On the Job Training,” a Filipino action thriller being directed by Erik Matti and scheduled to start production Oct. 1. The film is inspired by a real-life political scandal in the Philippines in which politicians, gangsters and prison officials cooperated to use inmates as assassins outside the prison walls.

XYZ Films is next producing a sequel to “The Raid” that starts production in January and an English-language remake to the original, currently in development at Sony Pictures’ Screen Gems.
