Soda nabs 'Summer Scars' for U.K.

LONDON — MPI Media Group has snapped up U.S. rights to Greg Mandry’s twisted Brit horror “Gnaw” from sales shingle Jinga Films.

Pic has the tagline “Nice to have your friends for dinner.”

Greg Newman, MPI’s vice president of acquisitions, said, “This is British horror at its most base, vile and rude; fans will love it.”

“Gnaw” has been selected to screen at the Fantasporto film festival in Portugal, which runs from Feb. 20 to March 1.
