Ascot Elite picks up ‘Voices,’ ‘Odd Thomas’

BERLIN

Ascot Elite Entertainment has picked up a slew of high-profile international features for German-speaking territories, including Ryan Reynolds starrer “The Voices.”

The Panorama title, helmed by Marjane Satrapi (“Persepolis”), is a psychological thriller about a mentally-ill man trying to live a normal life. The pic is set to shoot in February in Studio Babelsberg near Berlin.

The Zurich-based distrib has also acquired all German-speaking rights to Matthew Cooke’s documentary “How to Make Money Selling Drugs,” featuring Susan Sarandon, Woody Harrelson, Eminem and 50 Cent; and Richard Raaphorst’s World War II horror thriller “Frankenstein’s Army,” about Nazi scientists who assemble an undead army from the body parts of fallen soldiers in a desperate attempt for final victory.

It also took German theatrical and home entertainment rights to Stephen Sommers’ “Odd Thomas,” Fusion Films’ adaptation of the Dean Koontz fantasy thriller starring Anton Yelchin and Willem Dafoe.

Ascot Elite’s German theatrical arm Ascot Elite Filmverleih will next release Franck Khalfoun’s “Maniac,” starring Elijah Wood; Brian De Palma’s “Passion,” with Noomi Rapace and Rachel McAdams; British comedy “Song for Marion,” with Vanessa Redgrave and Terence Stamp; Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut “Don Jon’s Addiction,” in which the actor-director stars with Scarlett Johansson and Julianne Moore; and “Filth,” based on the novel by Irvine Welsh and starring James McAvoy, Jamie Bell and Jim Broadbent.
