Berlin: Ablaze Pulls Ahead With ‘The Tag Along’

Ablaze Image has picked up sales rights to “The Tag Along,” a Taiwanese horror thriller that will screen in Berlin’s European Film Market.

Based on an urban legend about the girl in red, the story follows mysterious disappearances and equally mysterious reappearances by a woman and her grandson.

The film is directed by Cheng Wei-hao and has a cast including River Huang, Hsu Wei-Ning and Yumi Wong.

Representative of a new generation of more commercial filmmaking in Taiwan, “Tag Along” was released theatrically in Taiwan in November last year, in Singapore, Malaysia and Vietnam in January.

Ablaze was formed three years ago by former Edko Films executive June Wu to handle Taiwanese cinema’s outreach.

The company has contributed to building the territory’s younger generation of stars, including Eddie Peng (in Ablaze’s “The Last Women Standing”) and Mark Chao (in Ablaze’s “Black And White: The Dawn of Justice”). Its lineup also includes a primer on the Taiwan ‘new wave,’ “Flowers of Taipei: Taiwan New Cinema.”

Ablaze is also representing recent festival favorites “Zinnia Flower,” directed by Tom Lin, and Chen Jianbin’s “A Fool.”
