Vega Baby and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have reached a multi-year agreement for SPHE to distribute and market Vega Baby’s films globally in physical and digital formats, Variety has learned exclusively.
Singapore-based Vega Baby is in pre-production on the horror/thriller “Devil’s Whisper,” written by Paul Todisco and Oliver Robins (“Order of the Swans”). It’s also in development on an untitled Chris McQuarrie script; “Kin,” an action/thriller from Black List scriptwriter Adam Taylor Barker; “Prowl,” an action/adventure written by Brett Hedblom; and the documentary “Curse of the Poltergeist,” starring Oliver Robins, who starred in the original “Poltergeist.”
“We are always looking to expand our product offerings in the home entertainment marketplace and this partnership is in keeping with that strategy,” said Ben Means, SPHE’s senior VP of Third Party Strategic Partnerships. “Vega Baby produces a variety of unique and compelling films in multiple genres that we expect to perform very well in both physical and digital home entertainment platforms.”
“In anticipation of our pact with Sony, we recently made a substantial increase to our acquisition fund which will allow us to go after higher profile films,” said Vega Baby Releasing’s chief executive officer/co-president Sheldon Brigman.
Vega Baby is a film finance, production and distribution company with representative offices in Singapore, Hong Kong and Los Angeles. “Everly,” starring Salma Hayek, was its first release in 2014 and its most recent release is the Dave Navarro documentary “Mourning Son.”
