VARIETY – “The Substance,” Coralie Fargeat’s buzzy horror movie starring Margaret Qualley and Demi Moore, has sold to one of France’s biggest distributors, Metropolitan FilmExport, ahead of its world premiere in competition at the Cannes Film Festival.

The Match Factory is handling international sales on the movie, and MUBI just acquired the rights in North America, the U.K., Ireland, Germany, Austria, Latin America and Benelux, where they will release the film theatrically this year. MUBI has also acquired the movie for Turkey and India.

“We’re very proud to be acquiring ‘The Substance’ by a French director who had already shined with her feature debut, ‘Revenge,’ and has been able to modernize a genre that very few filmmakers can tackle with such artistry,” said Victor Hadida, Metropolitan Filmexport’s co-founder and president.

Demi Moore, Margaret Qualley Body Horror ‘The Substance’ Acquired by Mubi Ahead of Cannes Competition World Premiere

VARIETY – Mubi has kicked off its 2024 Cannes Film Festival early and in style, acquiring worldwide rights to one of the buzziest films set to premiere in competition.

The arthouse distributor, production banner and streamer has landed Coralie Fargeat’s body horror “The Substance,” starring Demi Moore, Margaret Qualley and Denis Quaid, picking up all rights for North America, U.K., Ireland, Germany, Austria, Latin America and Benelux, where it will release theatrically this year. Mubi has also acquired the rights for Turkey and India. The Match Factory, owned by Mubi, is handling sales for all other territories.

Written and directed by Fargeat, who made a noise with her debut, 2017’s action-thriller “Revenge,” “The Substance” goes into Cannes with a significant amount of intrigue, having been produced by Working Title, the Brit banner best known for rom-coms and prestige dramas.

“Have you ever dreamed of a better version of yourself?” reads the description for “The Substance” on the festival website. “You should try this new product: The Substance. It changed my life. With The Substance, you can generate another version of yourself, younger, more beautiful, more perfect… Just share the time. One week for one, one week for the other. A perfect balance of seven days. Easy isn’t it?”

DEADLINEEXCLUSIVE: A24 has come aboard as domestic distributor of John Patton Ford’s Huntington, with the revenge thriller also adding Ed Harris and Margaret Qualley to a cast that already features Glen Powell.

Studiocanal is fully financing the film with casting director Lucy Bevan handling all casting.

EVP Global Production Ron Halpern and SVP Global Production Joe Naftalin will oversee for Studiocanal, along with Pete Czernin and Graham Broadbent at Blueprint Pictures.
