Fabien Westerhoff's new sales & financing shingle Film Constellation has acquired international sales rights to 'LAKE BODOM', the buzzed-about Scandinavian genre film now in post.
Taneli Mustonen's elevated horror was nabbed by Film Constellation hot off the 'Frontières Goes to Cannes' event at Cannes Film Festival, where producer Aleksi Hyvärinen of Helsinki-based Don Films presented work-in-progress material from the film.
"It's a great opportunity for us to have someone who is fresh and energetic, but at the same time seasoned due to his years at Hanway and Westend, to spearhead the international sales of the film".
BODOM, inspired by real events, tells the story of four teens who travel to the site of a legendary unsolved murder, to reconstruct the events that really took place there more than 50 years ago, hoping to solve the case once and for all. But as night falls, it turns out not all of them are there to play.
The helmer of the Finnish-language elevated horror, Taneli Mustonen, is currently shooting a sequel to his local hit comedy 'The Reunion', the most successful Finnish movie at the local box office in more than a decade, produced by Solar Films.
'BODOM' is co-written by Mustonen and his producing partner Aleksi Hyvärinen, both represented by Magnolia Entertainment.
