Edward Noeltner's Cinema Management Group has closed sales on its key Toronto sales titles Zambezia, Killer Bean Forever and The People Speak.
Poland's Vison Film and Turkey's Film Pop acquired rights to the trio. The animated feature Killer Bean Forever is based on Jeff Lew's short Killer Bean 2: The Party, which became a cult hit when it launched on iFilm in 2000 and drew more than 1.8m unique hits. The children's story centres on a hitman who tracks down a gangster in a crime ridden fantasy world inhabited by coffee beans.
Zambezia is 3D CGI family title from South African-based animation house Triggerfish Animation set in the Zambezi River Valley where the eponymous bird comes under attack from violent forces.
Civil rights feature The People Speak, which plays in the Mavericks Conversations programme in Toronto as a work-in-progress, features Viggo Mortensen, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin and Danny Glover.
