Nikkatsu, Vertical Entertainment And XYZ Films Line Up For A HEADSHOT
Still in production in Indonesia, Headshot focuses on an amnesiac (Iko Uwais) who, Bourne Identity-style, washes ashore with a serious and mysterious head injury. Shortly after being nursed back to health by a young doctor (Chelsea Islan), his past comes back to haunt him. Along with Uwais and Islan, it stars Julie Estelle, and Sunny Pang.
Julie Estelle as you may remember is Hammer Girl from The Raid 2. The Mo Brothers (Timo Tjahjanto and Kimo Stamboel) are directing a script by Timo.
Nikkatsu is handling international sales and distribution is Japan and the rest of Asia, save for Indonesia. They also helped finance the flick. Vertical and XYZ will work here in North America. This marks XYZ's first foray into distribution. Production is expected to wrap up in December.
(You know that thing where we post news about XYZ Films then remind everyone that ScreenAnarchy founder Todd Brown is a partner there but he had no influence on the writing of this article? Yeah? This is one of those times again.)
