Art Pictures Studio, Vodorod ("Attraction", "Ice") and National Media Group have started to pre-production of "The Amphibian" movie, based on the Alexander Belyaev's novel. Fedor Bondarchuk will be a director on new sci-fi movie.
Fedor Bondarchuk and Dmitry Rudovsky’s Moscow-based Arts Pictures Studio has closed a major Chinese deal for its new figure skating melodrama Ice, which has stormed to $8.7m in its first week in Russia and screens in the EFM.
Russian production and sales outfit Art Pictures Studios is beginning pre-sales in Cannes on the sequel to Fedor Bondarchuk’s sci-fi blockbuster Attraction.
"Ice is the movie about inspiration. It is a sports drama that focuses on the two elite level figure skaters. The actors spent a lot of time, both training on skates and practicing their vocals. Directed by Oleg Trofim, it is a critically acclaimed movie about passion, drama, falling down, getting up and achieving your dreams."
