LOS ANGELES, May 14, 2014 – Fox Hill Productions is pleased to announce that Gravitas Ventures has acquired the North American rights to the horror/thriller THE LAST LIGHT. Written and directed by Andrew Hyatt (The Frozen), the film stars Ed Quinn (Eureka), Edward Furlong (American History X), Jeff Fahey (Planet Terror), Tahyna Tozzi (X-Men Origins: Wolverine), Molly Hagan (Election), and Yvonne Zima (Iron Man 3). Produced by Fox Hill Productions’ Seth David Mitchell and Samantha Lusk, THE LAST LIGHT will be available on VOD and iTunes on June 3, 2014.
“We’re excited to partner with Gravitas Ventures in bringing THE LAST LIGHT to horror/thriller enthusiasts,” said Mitchell. “They are great partners, and they have the passion and the vision in marketing genre films. With a talented cast and a story that will leave audiences at the edge of their seats, THE LAST LIGHT will surely create a strong following.”
“Having seen the film at Shriekfest last year, we knew this would be a great film to work with. A riveting story with great performances combined with talented and savvy filmmakers, made for a very appealing acquisition for us,” said Mia Bruno, Senior Manager of Acquisitions at Gravitas Ventures.
THE LAST LIGHT tells the story of seven strangers who find themselves trapped in an abandoned building after an unexplained apocalyptic event. Not only are they haunted by memories of what they’ve lost, they are also forced to fight off mysterious creatures that hunt them down one by one.
ICM Partners and attorney Elsa Ramo negotiated the deal on behalf of Fox Hill and Mia Bruno on behalf of Gravitas. Writer/Director Andrew Hyatt is repped by Madhouse Entertainment and Jackoway Tyerman.
