Gael Garcia Bernal will zoom into American theaters next year…
Screen Media has acquired the U.S. rights to the Pedre Morelli-directed dimension-hopping sci-fi comedy Zoom, starring the 37-year-old Mexican actor.
Screen Media plans to release the film sometime during the third quarter of 2016.
Starring Garcia Bernal, Alison Pill, Jason Priestley and Tyler Labine, the partly animated, partly live action film sees three creative spirits — a comic book artist, a novelist, and a film director — who live in different realities but end up each writing a story about one of the others.
The Rhombus Media and 02 Filmes Canada/Brazil co-production was written by Matt Hansen and produced by Niv Fichman and Andrea Barata Ribeiro.
Zoom saw its world premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.
The deal was negotiated by Needle for Screen Media, with Gregory Chambet of WTFilms on behalf of the filmmakers.
