Lightning Nabs Rights to "Verso"

Santa Monica-based sales and distribution company Lightning Entertainment has picked up international sales rights (excluding Switzerland) to police thriller “Verso” from Tarantula Productions, Lightning’s co-presidents Rich Goldberg and Richard S. Guardian announced Tuesday. Lightning Entertainment will be introducing the film to foreign buyers for the first time at the upcoming American Film Market (AFM). Exposing a seedy side of Geneva that most of the world doesn’t really know and has never seen, director Xavier Ruiz’s “Verso” features international stars Laurent Lucas (“Harry, He’s Here To Help”), Carlos Leal (“Casino Royale”), Chloe Coulloud (“Neuilly Sa Mere!”) and international rap artist Andres “STRESS” Andrekson. Xavier Ruiz also co-wrote the screenplay with Nicholas Cuthbert and produced the film with Donato Rotunno. [Brian Brooks]
