Content Film announced this morning that it has acquired international sales rights to the sci-fi thriller 400 Days, starring Caity Lotz (The Machine, “Arrow”), Brandon Routh (Superman Returns, “Arrow”), Dane Cook (Good Luck Chuck, Planes) and Ben Feldman (Cloverfield, “Mad Men”).
Described as “‘Moon’ meets ‘The Divide,’” 400 Days follows a group of 4 astronauts in preparation for a journey into deep space. They spend 400 days in an incredibly realistic space capsule simulator, only to discover that their mission may not be as simulated as they were led to believe.
400 Days is written and directed by Matt Osterman (Ghost From the Machine) and produced by Gabriel Cowan (Cheap Thrills) and John Suits (Bad Milo).
Content Film President Jamie Carmichael said, “Matt, Gabriel and John have done an outstanding job on ’400 Days’ its just the kind of high concept, sci-fi horror that can really break out.”
“Matt has penned a mind-bending screenplay that reminds us why we make movies to begin with,” says NAA’s Gabriel Cowan. “Its complete sense of awe, mystery, and character grabbed us right away. And the crazy reality is that NASA and the European Space Agency are conducting these types of psychological experiments in preparation for the manned mission to Mars right now.”
It was revealed earlier this week that the film will be distributed in North America and co-produced by XLrator Media. The film is currently in post-production. Buyers will get their first glimpse of 400 Days in Toronto where exclusive, first time footage will be shown.
