SRI ASIH: Shout! Acquires North American Rights For Indonesian Superhero Pic
It’s been a long time coming, but Indonesian superhero adventure Sri Asih finally has a home with Shout! Studios set to release the pic on multiple platforms later this year. Actress Pevita Pearce leads the cast of the film based on comic author R.A. Kosasih’s 1954 creation.
Sri Asih is only the second in a string of comic book properties to be adapted out of the Screenplay Bumilangit wheelhouse. It follows Joko Anwar’s inaugural actioner, Gundala starring Abimana Arysatya, with the third being Ody C. Harahap’s Virgo and the Sparklings featuring Adhisty Zara.
Alana doesn’t understand why she is always influenced by anger. But she has always been trying to fight it. As she reaches adulthood, Alana discover the truth about her origin: she’s not an ordinary human being. She may be the gift for humanity and become its protector as SRI ASIH. Or a destruction, if she can’t control her anger.
Sri Asih is directed by Upi, who co-wrote the pic with Anwar. Premiere Entertainment Group is repping world sales on the film at Cannes.
