The Chinese production, Million Dollar Crocodile, the story of a giant crocodile who devours a bag of cash, has secured North America distribution with Screen Media Films acquiring all domestic rights.
The film is scheduled for a quarter one 2013 release and concerns a young boy, Xiao, and his 26-foot-long crocodile, Amao. The two live on a crocodile farm with their family. Due to a drop-off in business, however, Xiao’s father has to sell all of the crocs, including Amao, to a gangster who intends to slaughter the reptiles and make meals out of them. Amao escapes – eating a purse filled with one million EURO in the process – and is unleashed on a small town.
