Nathan Phillips’ ‘These Final Hours’ Gets U.S. Distribution

These Final Hours Cannes 2014

Well Go USA Entertainment has bought U.S. rights to apocalyptic adventure “These Final Hours,” which is being screened at Cannes in Directors Fortnight, for release later this year.

First-time Australian director Zak Hilditch also wrote the film. Celluloid Nightmares is selling the international rights.

“These Final Hours” centers on a self-obsessed man, played by Nathan Phillips, who’s on his way to a party on the last day on Earth and winds up saving the life of a little girl searching for her father. It was filmed over five weeks in Western Australia.

Paradigm handled North American sales on behalf of Roadshow.

Hilditch won the Critics’ Award for best Australian feature at the Melbourne Film Festival last year. Phillips’ credits include “Snakes on a Plane” and “Wolf Creek.”
