(LOS ANGELES, CA) November 8, 2013 – Synchronicity Entertainment has licensed the rights to horror comedy film COOTIES, starring Elijah Wood(THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy, upcoming GRAND PIANO), Alison Pill (HBO’s “The Newsroom”) and Rainn Wilson (NBC’S “The Office”) in the UK, Germany, Benelux and Brazil to Universal Pictures International Entertainment (UPIE), it was announced today by Ruzanna Kegeyan, President of Synchronicity Entertainment.
Directed by Cary Munion and Jonathan Milott, COOTIES is produced by SpectreVision partners Wood, Daniel Noah and Josh C. Waller as well as Steven Schneider (PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 1-4, INSIDIOUS), and Glacier Films' Tove Christensen and Georgy Malkov. 
The film is co-written by horror powerhouse Leigh Whannell (SAW 1-3, INSIDIOUS) and Fox’s hit series GLEE co-creator Ian Brennan, who also serve as executive producers.

The deal was negotiated by Kegeyan on behalf of Synchronicity, Matthew Dysart from Sheppard Mullin on behalf of the producers and Jasper van Hecke and Felicity Harrison on behalf of UPIE.

Not since Gremlins struck a nerve have little monsters terrorized a town in a wildly entertaining take on the horror genre.  UPIE’s enthusiasm for the release in such key
international territories as the UK and Germany promises that COOTIES has found the perfect home where it can grow globally,” said Ruzanna Kegeyan.
