Illusion Unlimited, Njuta nab 'Bunny Game'
Germany's Illusion Unlimited and Scandinavia's Njuta have both acquired distribution rights to Adam Rehmeiers horror pic "The Bunny Game." Pic, that's being checked out AFM by U.K. genre sales outfit Jinga Films, notifies the story from the drug addicted hooker who's held captive inside the desert having a deranged trucker. It stars Rodleen Getsic and Rob Renfro. Lately, the British Board of Film Classification (much like MPAA) rejected to classify "The Bunny Game," preventing its U.K. distrib Trinity Entertainment from delivering the pic inside the territory. Mark Sandell, co-director of Trinity, who acquired the film in Cannes taken mentioned that even though film was "challenging and confrontational" Rehmeier had "a really original filmic eye." "We did think the BBFC might request cuts but an outright stop offers the film a twisted prestige that, to tell the truth, it doesn't warrant," he mentioned. Jinga Films formerly looked uber-questionable "A Serbian Film" for the market. Outfit hopes to seal a U.S. deal for "The Bunny Game" in Santa Monica now.
