EXCLUSIVE: Here’s the first trailer for low-budget thriller The Boat, which will get its world premiere at Austin’s upcoming Fantastic Fest.
The well-sold feature was written by father-and-son team Winston and Joe Azzopardi, with the former directing and the latter starring in the movie. It follows a lone fisherman who boards and explores an abandoned sailboat. Having found no signs of life, he emerges back on deck to discover that his own boat has disappeared. A nightmarish journey ensues as the vessel presses inexorably onward’s into unknown waters with him trapped on board.
Deals have previously closed in France, Germany, Benelux, Scandinavia, Latin America, South Korea and more. Winston Azzopardi was a co-producer on Brad Pitt-starrer Troy.
