Cannes: Distant Horizon Wins China’s ‘League of Gods’

South Africa’s Distant Horizon has picked up international sales rights to big-budget Chinese fantasy action movie “League of Gods.”

The film has a starry cast headed by Jet Li, Fan Bingbing, Louis Koo, Angelababy, Andy On and Xu Qing (“Looper”.)

It features a group of unique super-heroes with special powers in a story based on the ancient novel “Fengshen Bang.”

Direction is by VFX ace Koan Xu. Production is by Charles Heung and Tiffany Chen’s China Star.

“We have been tracking ‘League of Gods’ from development stage. What has emerged is an action packed visual spectacle that combines China’s best talent with an award-winning international creative team,” said Distant Horizon chairman Anant Singh. “‘League of Gods’ has global appeal and has attracted a great deal of interest already, and following on the success of ‘The Mermaid,’ we are confident of its prospects internationally and are certain that we will close deals very quickly.”

The creative team includes composer John Debney (“Jungle Book”,) animation director, Randall William Cook (“Lord Of The Rings”,) sound designer Brent Burge (“The Hobbit”,) and editor, Wayne Philip Wahrman (“I Am Legend”.)
