Indomina embraces “FEAR”

 

The Indomina Group, Universal Pictures and Pinewood Studios Group Pact on Financing
and Distribution for New Comedy "A Fantastic Fear of Everything"

Los Angeles, CA / London, England - July 27, 2011 - It was announced today that The
Indomina Group, the fast-growing U.S. and Dominican Republic based producer and
distributor of film, TV and transmedia content, has acquired North American
Distribution rights to the comedy "A Fantastic Fear of Everything" starring Simon
Pegg ("Shaun of the Dead," "Hot Fuzz") and produced by Keel Films. The announcement
was made by Indomina Group Vice Chairman and CEO Jasbinder Singh Mann.

Currently being shot at Shepperton Studios in London, the film will be released in
the U.S. through Indomina's North American distribution division, Indomina
Releasing. Universal Pictures will release the film in the UK, Germany, Australia,
New Zealand and Latin America. Indomina's international sales division will handle
sales for all other territories. Indomina is also providing production financing.

"A Fantastic Fear of Everything" is written and directed by
musician-turned-filmmaker Crispian Mills, marking his feature debut. He is joined by
co-director and animator Chris Hopewell as part of a collaboration with Collision
Films, whose award-winning work includes Radiohead's There There and The Killers'
Smile Like You Mean It.  The film is produced by Geraldine Patten.

In the film, Jack (Simon Pegg) is a children's author turned crime novelist whose
detailed research into the lives of Victorian serial killers has turned him into a
paranoid wreck, persecuted by the irrational fear of being murdered. When Jack is
thrown a life-line by his long-suffering agent and a mysterious Hollywood executive
takes a sudden and inexplicable interest in his script, what should be his 'big
break' rapidly turns into his 'big breakdown', as Jack is forced to confront his
worst demons; among them his love life, his laundry and the origin of all fear.

Starring Simon Pegg as Jack, and introducing Alan Drake, A Fantastic Fear of
Everything also stars Amara Karan (The Darjeeling Limited), Clare Higgins
(Hellraiser) and Sheridan Smith (Hysteria).

"A Fantastic Fear of Everything" is the first film to receive backing from 'Pinewood
Films' - a new finance initiative for small budget independent British films by the
Pinewood Studios Group.
