‘Snowman’s’ to Music Box

Company nabs North American rights to offbeat German pic

Music Box Films has acquired North American rights to Tomasz Thomson’s offbeat German pic “Snowman’s Land,” which is sold by Guido Rud’s FilmSharks Intl.

A hitman-in-peril tale, “Land” has played to acclaim on the fest circuit. Music Box plans a limited theatrical release in major U.S. cities over the summer.

Thomson’s sophomore outing, “Land” has Jurgen Rissman as a contract killer out to redeem himself after bungling a job by knocking off a crazed gangster in the Carpathian mountains.

Film’s droll black humor and bodycount has drawn comparisons to Quentin Tarantino movies.

Deal was negotiated between Rud and William Schopf, CEO of Music Box Films.

Arte France also took the French/German TV rights to “Land.” The U.K., Japan and Italy are now under negotiations, Rud said.

A deal on U.S. remake rights with a U.S. producer is at an advanced stage of discussions, he added.
