Phase 4 heads to ‘Eden’

Company nabs North American rights to sex-slave drama

Phase 4 Films has acquired all North American rights to director Megan Griffiths’ sex-slave drama “Eden” and plans a theatrical release early next year.

Pic made its world premiere in Marcg at the South by Southwest Film Festival, where it won the audience award for best marrative feature and the emergent narrative woman director kudo for Griffiths.

Griffiths and Richard B. Phillips Jr. wrote the screenplay for the project, based on a true story by Chong Kim and Phillips.

Jamie Chung, Beau Bridges and Matt O’Leary star. Producers are Colin Harper Plank and Jacob Mosler through Plank’s Centripetal Films.

Chung won the best actress award at the Seattle International Film Festival for her work in the film.

Story is set in 1994 when a Korean-American teenager went to a bar in New Mexico where a man posing as a firefighter offered her a ride home. She was abducted and smuggled into Las Vegas where she was imprisoned as a sex slave for two years.

The deal was negotiated by Phase 4’s Larry Greenberg and Katharyn Howe with Cinetic Media on behalf of the filmmakers. International sales are being handled by Cinema Management Group, which has closed deals for Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands, Middle East, Japan and South Korea.
