...Samuel Goldwyn Films has announced today that they have acquired Worldwide Rights (excl. Australia and New Zealand) to director Antaine Furlong's sci-fi thriller Rising Wolf (aka Ascendant), and it looks mind-blowing!
In Rising Wolf, written by Antaine Furlong and Kieron Holland:
"A young woman wakes, trapped, kidnapped in an elevator of a super high rise building at the mercy of her tormentors. Without any form of escape, and cocooned in the belly of the beast, Aria is forced to adapt her thinking, her beliefs and her endurance. This is the first of the journeys that assault her mind and her senses, pinning her down in anguish only to emerge connected to abilities that define who she truly is."
The film stars Charlotte Best (A Name Without A Place), Jonny Pasvolsky (The Front Runner), Alex Menglet (TV’s "Wentworth"), Susan Prior (The Rover), Lily Stewart, Justin Cotta, Tahlia Sturzaker (I am Mother), and introducing Karelina Clarke.
Rising Wolf comes to theaters in Australia and New Zealand April 8th (where it will released as Ascendant). More details on a U.S. release here as we learn more.
