Well, it didn’t take very long for it to find a US buyer.
Instead of me recapping the story on this, I’ll direct you to the entry I posted last week, which details it all right HERE.
VMI Worldwide is repping worldwide rights to the horror/western movie Gallowwalkers, which stars Wesley Snipes, at the ongoing European Film Market, happening concurrently with the Berlin International Film Festival, where they are screening it for international buyers – the obvious goal being to sell the film to distributors all over the world, and get the film in front of paying audiences.
I learned earlier today that Wrekin Hill Entertainment has picked up USA release rights from VMI Worldwide, to Gallowwalkers.
Wrekin Hill Entertainment is a young Los Angeles-based production and distribution company, founded by the former Newmarket Films team of Chris Ball and Rene Cogan. While at Newmarket, Ball and Cogan oversaw production and distribution of indie films like Memento, Donnie Darko, Whale Rider, Monster, and The Passion Of The Christ – all films that were both critical and commercial successes.
The company plans to distribute 4 – 5 films theatrically annually, in addition to its home market releases via its recently announced a multi-year US home entertainment distribution deal with Lionsgate.
So it looks like Gallowwalkers is in good hands; it’s now a question of whether they’ll release it theatrically or if it’ll go straight to home video platforms; or maybe both simultaneously.
Check out an old trailer for the film (I assume a new one will be cut ahead of its release, whenever that will be), and its official poster below:
