Voltage Pictures will be handling sales on “Eve,” which it is also financing. Voltage president Jonathan Deckter notes that the company was able to take advantage of Chastain being available to shoot the movie this fall. He noted that Voltage managed to go ahead two years ago with Amy Schumer, who had a similar window to make “I Feel Pretty,” which went on to gross $96 million worldwide.
Deckter noted that buyers have become significantly more discerning in recent years.
“Buyers are hungry for premium product,” he said. “The biggest adjustment is that the volume of films is not what it was five to seven years ago.”
