Shout! Factory Inks Distribution Deal with SC Films5 Nov, 2012 By: Chris Tribbey
Independent distributor Shout! Factory has inked a deal with London-based SC Films International to bring two new films stateside.
Shout! plans limited U.S. theatrical releases for the horror-comedy Cockneys vs. Zombies and the suspense thriller Tower Block in 2013, along with disc, VOD, electronic sellthrough and broadcast. Shout! also has Canadian distribution rights for Cockneys vs. Zombies.
“We look forward to bringing these highly entertaining films to North American movie fans through a variety of entertainment distribution platforms and physical home entertainment releases,” Shout! Factory founders Richard Foos, Bob Emmer and Garson Foos said in a statement. “The cinematic quality and talented cast make these films perfect additions to our cinema library.”
Cockneys vs. Zombies follows two hapless brothers caught up in a zombie apocalypse following a bank robbery, while Tower Block sees the residents of a building banding together against a mysterious sniper who’s picking them off one by one.
“SC Films is delighted to announce U.S distribution via Shout! Factory for both Cockneys vs. Zombies and Tower Block,” said SC Films founder Simon Crowe, former head of sales for Mel Gibson’s Icon Entertainment International. “The producers and I are very excited by the enthusiasm shown by the Shout! Factory team, and we hope this is the start of a long term relationship.”
