Greenland 2 distributor, story details, filming date

STX, who distributed the original, has picked up the rights to “Greenland : Migration” at Cannes.

Gerard Butler sci-fi hit “Greeland” is getting a sequel.

STX, who distributed the original, has picked up the rights to “Greenland : Migration” at Cannes.

Deadline says, “STX is stumping up around $25 million for domestic rights in a deal cut with Euro producer-seller Anton and CAA Media Finance. Multiple streamers were in the hunt for the movie. STX will also take all of international from Anton in a pact that values foreign at around $50 million.

Anton took the project to the virtual market where it garnered significant interest from indie buyers, but — as often happens on successful franchise fare — STX, which distributed the original movie, had a matching option and was happy to take the plunge. The movie will now run through the studio’s foreign output partners and is being sold to buyers in other markets.”

In the sequel, Butler and Morena Baccarin’s characters must “leave the safety of the Greenland bunker and embark on a perilous journey across the decimated frozen wasteland of Europe to find a new home.”

Ric Roman Waugh will return to direct, with filming expected to take place sometime early next year.
