‘Nothing’ doing Mifed sales

Natali's comedy sold to Metropolitan, Manga, LNK Films

MILAN — Suggesting a market for edgy mainstream product, Senator Intl. has sold Vincenzo Natali’s upcoming comedy “Nothing” to Metropolitan in France, Manga in Spain and LNK Films in Portugal at the 69th Mifed market, which wrapped Thursday. Japanese rights are already held by the Klockwork Co.

Senator Intl.’s hottest title was the Sam Raimi-produced chiller “Boogeyman,” which closed major territory deals for France (HFP), Spain (Manga), Australia (Village Roadshow), Benelux (Belga), Scandinavia (Nordisk) and South Korea (Ivision).

Written by newcomer Eric Kripke, “Boogeyman” is the first film to come out of the genre label launched by Raimi, Rob Tapert and Senator Intl.

Sales success of “Boogeyman” is unusual in that a director and cast have yet to be announced. A development promo reel was prepped by Raimi for exhibition at Mifed.

“When the marketplace really understood the level of commitment Sam and Rob have to horror film and launching this brand and this first movie, the distributors jumped on it, and we appreciate that,” said Senator Intl. prexy Joe Drake.
