Following its premiere at Sundance, Utopia and Sumerian have nabbed the rights to writer-director Eddie Alcazar‘s sci-fi thriller Divinity, starring Bella Thorne, Stephen Dorff, and Scott Bakula. Today, we have the first image and the poster to share with you.


“Set in an otherworldly human existence, scientist Sterling Pierce dedicated his life to the quest for immortality, slowly creating the building blocks of a groundbreaking serum named “Divinity.” Jaxxon Pierce, his son, now controls and manufactures his father’s once-benevolent dream. Society on this barren planet has been entirely perverted by the supremacy of the drug, whose true origins are shrouded in mystery. Two mysterious brothers arrive with a plan to abduct the mogul, and with the help of a seductive woman named Nikita, they will be set on a path hurtling toward true immortality.”


Moises Arias, Jason Genao, Michael O’Hearn, Karrueche Tran, and Emily Willis also star.


Divinity was written and directed by Eddie Alcazar and executive produced by Steven Soderbergh. Utopia is planning an exclusive theatrical release this Fall, with an opening date soon to be announced.


Utopia and Sumerian said of their partnership, “Our worlds collided when falling in love with Eddie’s film & vision for DIVINITY. The film represents a cultural crossroads of film, music, fashion and art. We believe that this partnership represents the beginning of a new era where stories can live on screen and off the screen by blurring the lines between a film itself and the integral components that compose a film’s DNA.”


Alcazar said, “I’m grateful to work with such forward thinking distributors like Utopia and Sumerian. I believe more audiences are looking to re-appreciate the art of film these days and having a company like Utopia/Sumerian support unique cinematic visions and take them to the big screen is a dream come true.”


Sumerian founder Ash Avildsen adds, “DIVINITY is a potent and timely avant-garde film that explores the human psyche around immortality, desire and fertility. The dystopian world Eddie Alcazar brings us into feels all too familiar with life today and I believe Divinity is a must see for the current generation.”


CAA Media Finance negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers and Danielle DiGiacomo and Ryan Anthony Menge on behalf of Utopia & Sumerian. Utopia Head of Sales Marie Zeniter will introduce the film to international buyers at the Cannes film festival.


UTOPIA is a film distribution and sales company that specializes in author-driven cinema. Recent Utopia releases include Oscar-shortlisted and Cannes award-winning Holy Spider.



The trailer should arrive soon. We’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, check out the film’s first image and poster.
