"The Signal" Lands at Magnolia

By Indiewire | Indiewire January 24, 2007 at 5:28AM

Magnolia Pictures has officially announced a seven-figure deal for all English language rights to David Bruckner, Dan Bush, and Jacob Gentry's "The Signal" in a pact with Shoreline Entertainment and Popfilm. Described as an "apocalyptic horror film," the movie screened in the Sundance FIlm Festival's midnight section. The acquisition marks the second of the festival for Magnolia, after acquiring Dan Klores' "Crazy Love." In a statement, company president Eamonn Bowles said, "It's become obvious over the course of the last few years that genre filmmaking is where to look for the most exciting new talent. 'The Signal' isn't just a great horror movie---it's a great movie, period." Bowles, head of acquisitions Tom Quinn, manager of acquisitions Ben Stambler, and head of business affairs Jason Janego negotiated the deal with Cassian Elwes, Philip Alberstat, and Jerome Duboz from William Morris Independent, in conjunction with Morris Ruskin, Sam Eigen and Brian Sweet of Shoreline Entertainment.
