Since unveiling the project at Berlin’s EFM, up-and-coming U.K. outfit Embankment has pre-sold “Submergence” to more than 30 territories, including Lionsgate for the U.K., NFP & Warner for Germany, Mars and Selective for France, Antena 3 for Spain, Elevation for Canada and California for Latin America.
UTA Independent teamed with Backup to set up financing and is handling the U.S. sale.
The “Submergence” shoot is more than halfway complete after finishing its leg in France. It will wrap in Germany next week.
