MUMBAU: UTV Motion Pictures has signed a foreign sales deal with Madrid-based film sales company 6 Sales, for the Heather Graham starrer, ExTerminators.
ExTerminators is UTV’s first independent production in the US. UTV, through its foreign sales partner, has already inked deals for Romania, Benulux and Middle Eastern territories.
The movie, directed by John Inwood, also stars Jennifer Coolidge and Amber Heard. It is a dark comedy about Alex (Graham), a lonely accountant whose sole act of rage results in her being sentenced to court mandated rage therapy. There she meets Stella (Coolidge), the owner of a small extermination business who uses her car as a weapon; and Nikki (Heard), a dental technician with the face of an angel and the mind of a sociopath. Together these unlikely friends form their own ‘silent revolution’.
UTV Motion Pictures, USA vice president Lokesh Dhar said, "With ExTerminators, we look forward to strengthening our base in the international markets. After our international co-productions such as The Namesake, I think I Love My Wife and The Happening, ExTerminators is UTV’s first independent production in the US and is definitely a landmark for us."
"The public response is exactly what we had hoped for: uncontrollable laughter. We believe this type of movie is what the audiences are looking for. Good fun entertainment," said 6 Sales partner Marina Fuentes.
The film premiered at SXSW (South by South West) festival in Austin, one of the top film festivals in the US.
