Set up as a British-French co-pro, “Road Games” is produced by “The Host’s” Junyoung Jang at London-based February films and Guillaume Benski at Paris-based Superbe Films (“March of the Penguins”), in association with France’s financing firm Backup Media, crowdfunding platform Movies Angels, the U.K.’s Trigger Films and South Korea’s MCMC Films.
