13 Films has sold the distribution rights for Untöt (meaning “undead” in German), an action-horror film starring Hayden Christensen according to Screen Daily. Kaleidoscope Films has acquired the rights for the UK, and Splendid has the German and Benelux rights.

The film tells the story of a Second World War German Army unit that encounters an undead force in a secret weapons facility. Video game producer-director Kris Renkewitz makes his feature film debut and Greg O’Connor of Solaris Entertainment produces Untöt.

“We are thrilled with the positive response from overseas buyers on Untöt,” said Anisi. “Hayden Christensen has commercial appeal and Renkewitz has crafted a chilling and suspenseful tale which will leave audiences on the edge of their seat once this story is brought to life.”

13 Films’ slate in Cannes includes thriller Every Good Boy Does Fine set to star Michael Nyqvist and Famke Janssen and action film Entry Level that Franck Khalfoun will direct.
