Screen Media Films has acquired North American rights to the headbanger tale "FUBAR: Balls to the Wall," the company announced Thursday.
Michael Dowse's movie stars Paul J. Spence and David Lawrence. Its U.S. premiere is scheduled for the SXSW Film Festival in March.
The movie, a sequel to 2002's "FUBAR," is about Terry and Dean, Canadian friends who head north for the holidays to make it rich working on oil pipelines.
“I am thrilled to be slapping FUBAR’s ball to American walls this spring, a partridge will be shotgunning beers in a pear tree," Dowse said in a written statement. "We couldn't have a better partner than Screen Media to bring' FUBAR: Balls to the Wall' out to American audiences with.”
The comedy was written by Michael Dowse, David Lawrence, and Paul J. Spence, produced by George Baptist, Shirley Vercruysse, Jennifer Wilson, Michael Dowse, David Lawrence, and Paul J. Spence, with cinematography by Bobby Shore, and editing by Reginald Harkema.
The deal was negotiated by Robert Baruc and Suzanne Blech from Screen Media Films, and Bec Smith at UTA on behalf of the filmmakers.
Screen Media plans to release the film on VOD and home video on April 19.
