Alchemy has acquired all North American rights to director Antoine Bardou-Jacquet’s action-comedy “Moonwalkers” following its world premiere at South by Souhwest.

Ron Perlman, Rupert Grint and Robert Sheehan star in “Moonwalkers,” based on the premise that Stanley Kubrick secretly shot the famous images of the moon landing in a studio, working for the US government. Perlman portrays a CIA agent who teams with Grint, the manager of of a seedy rock band.

The film was written by Dean Craig. Georges Bermann (Partizan Films) produced and Sylvain Goldberg, Serge de Poucques, Peter de Maegd, Tom Hameeuw and Grégoire Melin served as co-producers.

Alchemy’s Jeff Deutchman negotiated the deal with Melin and Ram Murali of Kinology and UTA Independent Film Group on behalf of the filmmakers.
