Music Box takes cannibal comedy ‘Eddie’

Global Screen deal includes murder drama 'Silence'

BERLIN

Chicago-based Music Box Films has picked up U.S. rights to Boris Rodriguez’s Canadian-Danish horror comedy “Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal.”

The black comedy, which stars Danish actor Thure Lindhardt (“Keep the Lights On”) and Dylan Smith, follows a once renowned painter who finds much-needed inspiration in the bloody nocturnal antics of a somnambulant student while teaching at a Canadian art college.

“Eddie” received positive reviews after its North American premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival and nabbed the Black Tulip Award at Amsterdam’s Imagine Film Festival.

Music Box also picked up all theatrical rights to Baran Bo Odar’s German crime thriller “The Silence,” starring fellow Dane Ulrich Thomsen (“In a Better World”) and Wotan Wilke Moehring.

Based on Jan Costin Wagner’s best-seller, the pic tells the story of a murder and a copycat killing 23 years later, and the impact the crimes have on all involved.

“Eddie” and “Silence” are both handled internationally by Global Screen, the sales and distribution joint venture between Telepool and Bavaria Media.

The deals were negotiated by Sonia Mehandjiyska of Global Screen, and Edward Arentz and William Schopf of Music Box.
