First look at undead thriller Untot starring Hayden Christensen


Do you guys remember that undead Nazi movie starring Hayden Christensen that we talked about back in February? No? Me either! Well, we have some news regarding that film—UNTÖT—as Screen Daily reports that 13 Films has sold multiple territories on the Kris Renkewitz-directed horror film, who will be making his directorial debut. Above is your exciting first look at the film!

Kaleidoscope Film Distribution will distribute in the UK and Splendid has acquired German and Benelux rights to the story of a Second World War German Army unit that encounters an undead force in a secret weapons facility.

UNTÖT, meaning “undead” in German, is set towards the end of World War II in December 1944. During a blizzard, an elite military unit headed by Lt. Fredrick Hank (Christensen), is dropped behind enemy lines in the mountains of Poland to destroy a secret Nazi weapons facility. The soldiers must face their greatest fears when they encounter something they could never have been trained for. The undead.

“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 president Tannaz Anisi also announced further deals in South Korea (Sookie Pictures), the Middle East (Eagle Films), Tanweer (Indonesia), Red Pictures (Malaysia) and South Africa (Ster-Kinekor).
