CBS Films has acquired the U.S. distribution rights to the action thriller "Ends of the Earth," the studio said Tuesday. 

The film follows two best friends on a trip around the world that takes an unexpected supernatural detour. The film was written and directed by first-time feature filmmakers Derek Lee and Clif Prowse.

Chris Ferguson and Zach Lipovsky produced the film with backing by Telefilm Canada. IM Global's Stuart Ford, Automatik's Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Alliance's Charles Layton are on board as executive producers.

The deal was negotiated by Ford, IM Global's Jonathan Deckter, Kavanaugh-Jones and Verve, who represent the filmmakers.  Jack Bleck and Scott Shooman negotiated for CBS Films. 

IM Global will handle the sale of international territories at the Cannes Film Festival, with Alliance holding the rights to the film in Canada, the U.K. and Spain.
