Bliss Media announced today that Boyd Holbrook will star in Juan Cabral’s Two/One.  Bliss Media’s Wei Han, RedRum Films’ Chris Clark and Flora Fernandez Marengo will produce, along with Dave Valleau for South Creek Pictures.  Bliss Media is fully financing the film. Protagonist Pictures will handle international sales, which will commence in Cannes next week. CAA arranged the financing and is representing the domestic rights.  Bliss Media will handle the Chinese distribution rights.

Two/One explores the concept that while we sleep in one place, we are awake somewhere else. Kaden is a world-class ski jumper in Whistler, Canada, unexpectedly presented with the chance of reconnecting with his teenage sweetheart. Khai is a corporate executive in Shanghai, China, faced with the fact that the girl he fantasizes about on the internet has just started working in his office. The two men go about their lives, without knowing that they are connected. When one is awake, the other is asleep. They dream each other. They are, in some strange way, the same person. The question is what happens if they were ever to meet….

Principal photography is scheduled to commence in Vancouver and Shanghai in Q4 of this year.

Bliss Media’s Wei Han said: “The script is packed with the potential to become a deeply moving story about relationships in a globalized world. We want to make a radical film that generates buzz with the ability to crossover and connect universally. This is a fresh, striking and hypnotizing film, which doesn’t come around often.”

“Protagonist is always looking for films that will attract audiences in a world where there is so much competition from other media, and Two/One is just that special project”, said Protagonist Pictures CEO Mike Goodridge. “Juan Cabral is a visionary and his first feature promises to be visually stunning, dramatically riveting and a fascinating exploration of the globalized world. We couldn’t be more excited to be working with Bliss Media and our old friends Chris Clark and Flora Fernandez Marengo on this unique film.”

Cabral is an Argentine director known for the acclaimed Cadbury’s ‘Gorilla’ advert and his ideas for Sony Bravia’s ‘Paint’, ‘Balls’ & ‘Rabbits’ advertisements. Throughout his career, he has amassed over 20 Cannes Lions, 2 Cannes Grand Prix and a nomination for ‘Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Commercials’ by the DGA in 2016

Holbrook has starred in projects including Fox’s Logan, Gone Girl, A Walk Among the Tombstones, The Free World, Little Accidents and in the Netflix series “Narcos.” He can next be seen in Shane Black’s The Predator for 20th Century Fox, currently in production.

Bliss Media recently handled the Chinese distribution of Mel Gibson’s Academy Award nominated film Hacksaw Ridge, which has grossed over $62 million USD in territory. Bliss Media recently co-financed and executive produced Pablo Larraín’s Jackie starring Natalie Portman. Their upcoming slate includes Charles Martin’s S.M.A.R.T. Chase starring Orlando Bloom, and Deniz Gamze Ergüven’s Kings starring Daniel Craig and Halle Berry. Bliss Media is fully financing both projects.

With offices in Shanghai and Los Angeles, Bliss Media is a production and distribution company tasked with creating opportunities for Chinese companies to directly participate in the investment, production and distribution of international films. The company also owns a stake in Insiders, alongside Wild Bunch and Cine France.
