Cannes'15: The Exchange Brings Mila Kunis' 'Hell & Back' to la Croisette

Brian O’Shea, CEO of The Exchange, has announced the acquisition of international sales rights of the star-studded animated film “Hell & Back.” The film will be released this fall theatrically nationwide and a U.S distributor will be announced separately.

In the vein of adult-oriented hit films like “South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut” and “Team America,” “Hell & Back” is an irreverent R-rated comedy starring Mila Kunis (“Black Swan,” “That 70’s Show”), Danny McBride (“This is the End,” “Pineapple Express”), T.J. Miller (“How to Train Your Dragon,” “Cloverfield”) Bob Odenkirk (SNL, “The Spectacular Now”), Susan Sarandon (“Thelam & Louise,” “Dead Man Walking”), Jennifer Coolidge (“American Pie,” “A Cindnrella Story”), Rob Riggle (“21 Jump Street,” “The Hangover”) and) directed by Tom Gianas (SNL) and Ross Shuman (“Robot Chicken”), produced by Corey Campodonico (“Robot Chicken”), Alexander Bulkey (“Robot Chicken”) and Eric Blyler (“Robot Chicken”).

Captured in high quality Stop-Motion, “Hell & Back” follows two best pals who must rescue their friend after he’s accidentally dragged to hell. The Exchange will introduce and screen the title at the 2015 Cannes Film Market to international buyers.

“‘Hell & Back’ is funny, irreverent, and has global appeal.” O’Shea went on to say “the film has an incredible production value, a very original story and lots of physical comedy. This makes it easy to translate into non-English markets.”

The Exchange is a leading international sales and finance company committed to creating strong relationships between filmmakers, film financers and distributors through the exchange of product, information and commerce. Created by veteran sales executive Brian O’Shea, the company specializes in high quality, commercial films that appeal to North American audiences and the ever-evolving global film market.
