Cinedigm and Voltage Pictures have entered into a three-year, five-picture output deal with the new genre label Rapid Eye Film.
The outfit, founded by filmmaker Marco Weber, will develop, finance and produce the films, and Cinedigm will provide a US theatrical release and subsequent roll out across on-demand, digital, TV and DVD. Nic Chartier’s Voltage Pictures will handle international sales on all five films.
The first film green lit under the agreement is the sci-fi thriller Unraveling, with casting under way.
Unraveling was written and will be directed by Weber, who is producing alongside his longtime producing partner Vanessa Coifman and producer Miggel Schwickerath. The film will shoot on location in Los Angeles this spring.
