Heading to the EFM in Berlin is Night Raiders, an apocalyptic sci-fi that will be exec-produced by Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows, Thor: Ragnarok).
“Set in the year 2043 when a military occupation controls disenfranchised cities in North America and children are property of the state, the female-driven dystopian story follows a woman who joins an underground band of vigilantes to infiltrate a ‘children’s academy’ and get her daughter back.”
The Canada-New Zealand co-production from writer-director Danis Goulet stars Elle-Maija Tailfeathers (Blood Quantum, The Body Remembers When the World Broke Open) with Amanda Plummer (Pulp Fiction, “Ratched”), Brooklyn Letexier-Hart, Alex Tarrant, Violet Nelson and Gail Maurice.
Deadline, who broke the news, writes that XYZ Films has boarded world sales, excluding Canada and Australia/NZ.
Waititi is exec-producing along with Noah Segal, Adrian Love, Tim White, Lisa Meeches and Kyle Irving. Paul Barkin, Tara Woodbury, Georgina Condor, Chelsea Winstanley (JoJo Rabbit) and Ainsley Gardiner (The Breaker Uppers) are producing.
