John Connor [Celluloid 11.04.15] horror thriller fantasy

XLrator Media (Time Lapse, The Machine) has acquired U.S. distribution rights to Pearry Teo's Silent Hill inspired, dark fantasy film The Curse of Sleeping Beauty from Bleiberg Entertainment for release in 2016.

The two companies will also develop and co-produce an episodic series based on the film and acclaimed artist Everette Hartsoe ("Razor") has created a graphic novel to tie in with the release of the film.

The sale was made at the American Film Market.

THE CURSE OF SLEEPING BEAUTY stars Ethan Peck (Eden), the grandson of Gregory Peck, India Eisley (Underworld: Awakening), Natalie Hall (True Blood) and Academy Award nominee Bruce Davison (X-Men).

The film was produced by Ehud Bleiberg (The Iceman) and Pearry Teo (Cloud Atlas). Teo directed from a screenplay he wrote with Josh Nadler, inspired by characters from the Brothers Grimm tale.

Thomas Kaiser (Peck) inherits an ancestral mansion that has been in his family for generations -- only to learn that he has also inherited an ancient curse stemming back to the Crusades.

Forced into his new role as "protector" -- the guardian appointed to keep the evil demons in the house at bay -- Thomas teams with an ambitious local realtor (Hall) and paranormal cleric (Davison) to unravel the mystery of the house, while struggling to awaken the beautiful Briar Rose (Eisley), held captive in a terrifying netherworld seen previously in his dreams.

More as it comes, folks!
