Universum buys ‘Donkey Punch’

Pic is first from Warp X

LONDON — Olly Blackburn’s “Donkey Punch,” the first movie from UK digital studio Warp X, has been pre-sold to Universum for distribution in all German-speaking territories.

The film, currently in post, is set on a yacht in the Mediterranean, where a drunken party among a group of young Brit holiday-makers goes horribly wrong.

Sam Horley of sales agent Lumina Films negotiated the German pre-sale, an unusually early deal for such a low-budget British pic.

Warp X, based in Sheffield, is backed by Film4, the U.K. Film Council, Screen Yorkshire and EM Media, with Optimum Releasing handling U.K. distribution.
