A group of girls is turning to savagery in order to survive an apocalyptic event in the upcoming thriller, ‘Ladyworld.’ Their stress and fear is being brought to light, as Cleopatra Entertainment has acquired the North American rights to the movie. The rights deal was brokered by Cleopatra Founder and CEO, Brian Perera; Tim Yasui, the VP/GM of Cleopatra Entertainment; and Lucas Verga and Andrew Herwitz from The Film Sales Company, on behalf of the filmmakers.

The distributor will theatrically release the drama nationwide on August 2, and then on VOD and DVD on August 27. ‘Ladyworld’s official distribution comes after it had a successful run on the Festival circuit, including BFI, Fantastic Fest and at TIFF New Wave. Additionally, the thriller will have its East Coast premiere on Friday, August 2 at the Cinema Village theater in New York, and also its West Coast premiere the same night at the Arena Cinelounge in Los Angeles. A Q&A with the movie’s director, Amanda Kramer, and the cast will follow.

The film, which was co-written by Kramer and Benjamin Shearn, is a modernized all-girl story inspired by ‘Lord of the Flies.’ ‘Ladyworld’ stars Ariela Barer, Annalise Basso, Ryan Simpkins, Odessa Adlon, Maya Hawke (the daughter of Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, who will also be seen in the upcoming third season of ‘Stranger Things’), Tatsumi Romano, Zoe Casabere and Atheena Frizzell. The drama was produced by Love & Death Productions’ Leal Naim and Thomas R. Burke, alongside Kramer.
