“Resident Evil” producer Jeremy Bolt announced plans for a sequel in Beijing on Thursday ahead of a high profile seminar on Chinese-international co-production.
“Outcast,” a tale of two 12th century European crusaders who voyage to China, where they find redemption, is set up as a Chinese-French-Canadian joint venture. China’s Yunnan Film Group is financier and co-producer. U.S.-Australian sales and finance outfit Arclight Films is handling international sales.
“We are planning a worldwide release, including the U.S. and China, in September and October this year,” said Bolt.
“’Outcast’ has been acclaimed by buyers, and we are determined to make a sequel,” Bolt said at a public ceremony for the signing of an “Outcast 2” memorandum of understanding.
