Vertical Entertainment has announced the acquisition of the North American rights to “Eden,” a thriller directed by Shyam Madiraju. The “Lord Of The Flies”-esque story follows the crew of an American soccer team after their plane crashes off the coast of a deserted island. The group separates into two factions, increasingly at odds as resources and food supplies begin to run out.
Producer Juan Sola said about the deal: “We are excited to once again partner with Vertical Entertainment on the release of our survival thriller, ‘Eden’. The collaboration on our first film ‘Anna’ was a great experience.”
The film stars Ethan Peck (grandson of Hollywood legend Gregory Peck), Jessica Lowndes (“90210”), Diego Boneta (“Rock of Ages”), James Remar, Sung Kang, and Nate Parker (“Beyond The Lights”).
Vertical plans to release “Eden” in late 2015.
