Screen Media has acquired U.S. rights to the Pedre Morelli-directed dimension-hopping sci-fi comedy Zoom, with plans to release it day and date sometime during Q3 2016. Starring Gael Garcia Bernal, Alison Pill, Jason Priestley and Tyler Labine, the partly animated, partly live action film sees three creative spirits — a comic book artist, a novelist, and a film director — who live in different realities but end up each writing a story about one of the others.
The Rhombus Media and 02 Filmes Canada/Brazil co-production was written by Matt Hansen and produced by Niv Fichman and Andrea Barata Ribeiro. Zoom saw its world premiere at TIFF 2015. The deal was negotiated by Needle for Screen Media, with Gregory Chambet of WTFilms on behalf of the filmmakers.
