Horror action spoof “Office Uprising” has sold in numerous territories, it was announced by Brian Shea of The Exchange on Wednesday in Cannes.

Director Lin Oeding recently wrapped production on the film that stars Brenton Thwaites, Jane Levy, Karan Soni, Zachary Levy, and Alan Ritchson.

“The combination of the commercial concept, high production value and the established stars is allowing us to make aggressive pre-sales of this genre bending movie,” said O’Shea.

“Office Uprising” was acquired by AB Droits Audiovisuels in France, for Latin America by Swen Group International; in Russia by Volga; in the Middle East by Selim Ramia, in China by DDDream International Media and in Thailand by SahaMongkol.

Written by Ian Shorr and Peter Gamble Robinson, “Office Uprising” is the story of an underachiever working at a weapons manufacturing company who finds that his colleagues have been weaponized by a new energy drink, and must then rescue his love interest from an office building full of psychotic coworkers. Producers are Giulia Prenna, Jim Steele, Sean Lydiard and Will Clevinger.

A longtime stuntman and stunt coordinator, Oeding made his feature directing debut on “Braven,” starring Jason Momoa.

    He still hasn’t paid his background actors. We shot in December. It’s nearly July, and they’ve been giving us all the run-around.

    Too similar to the excellent BELKO EXPERIMENT, and even that one didn’t really find an appreciative audience.

      I agree with Panos, from what I’ve been able to read, it doesn’t seem anything like Belko Experiment. Sounds like it’ll be a funny action movie. As Panos said, like Zombieland mashed with maybe Office Space or something like that. Personally I think it has an audience and sounds pretty awesome!

    • Panos says:

      Actually i don’t think they will be very similar at all since Office Uprising is an action comedy , more of the likes of Zombieland than Belko Expreriment
