It has felt like an eternity but finally the English remake of the 2007 flick , Apartment 1303, is finally seeing an American release as Gravitas Ventures has acquired the theatrical and digital rights to the film and we have all the details.
From the Press Release:
“Gravitas Ventures announced today that they have acquired theatrical and digital rights to APARTMENT 1303 3D from MonteCristo International. The tense supernatural thriller, written and directed by Michael Taverna, is based on a novel by Kei Ôishi and is a remake of a Japanese horror title of the same name.
APARTMENT 1303 3D, starring Mischa Barton (“The O.C.”), Rebecca De Mornay (The Hand That Rocks the Cradle), and Julianne Michelle (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps), will debut on VOD on June 17th. On July 25th APARTMENT 1303 3D will be released theatrically in 20 markets including many 3D midnight shows.
The deal for APARTMENT 1303 3D was negotiated by Gravitas Ventures’ Nolan Gallagher and Monte Cristo International’s Cindy Nelson-Mullen.
“APARTMENT 1303 3D is a taut white knuckle supernatural thriller that will frighten apartment dwellers and home owners alike,” remarked Nolan Gallagher, founder and CEO of Gravitas Ventures. “The 3D presentation and performances of Mischa Barton, Rebecca De Mornay and Julianne Michelle will take hold of moviegoers and home viewers looking for a summer scare.”
“APARTMENT 1303 3D is being released theatrically around the world and is holding its ground at the box office against higher budget 3D titles like Oz and Jack the Giant Slayer. This speaks to the quality of the film and of the full stereoscopic 3D as well as the demand for 3D content worldwide,” said Cindy Nelson-Mullen , CEO of Monte Cristo International.”
