Finecut slices out Cannes deals

Cineart, Filmhouse, Edko, Shani opt for 'New Life'

SEOUL — Korean sales agency Finecut has closed further deals on its Cannes slate.

“A Brand New Life,” which was selected for the Special Screening section of the fest, was sold to Cineart for the Benelux countries, Filmhouse for Mexico, Edko Films for Hong Kong and Shani Films for Israel.

Finecut had previously sold the pic to Diaphana for French-speaking territories, while the film was still in development.

The company is in negotiations for other major territories such as U.S., U.K., Germany and Japan, said topper Youngjoo Suh.

Visicom Surya picked up the upcoming summer movie “Chaw” for Singapore. The pic had been pre-sold to several territories, including German-speaking territories (Ascot & Elite), India (IOF Ent.) and Thailand (J-Bics).

Taiwan’s Catchplay acquired eight Finecut titles, including “Eye for an Eye,” “Hansel and Gretel” and “My Dear Enemy.” “Hansel and Gretel” was also sold to Compania General de la Imagen for Argentina, Chile and Uruguay.

“A Blood Pledge,” the fifth instalment in the horror franchise that includes “The Whispering Corridors” and “Memento Mori,” was acquired by Encore Films for Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. The pic’s nationwide release in Korea on June 18 marks the 10th anniversary of the start of the franchise, which unleashed a new wave of horror pics in the country.
