The new studio Synchronicity will make a splash at the American Film Market in Santa Monica, California this week with new projects Cooties, Due Process, and Smiley.

Smiley already has a distribution deal in place through AMC theaters in a limited number of markets. It seems Synchronicity is seeking to expand off of that platform release.

Cooties stars Elijah Wood and centers on an elementary school that becomes infected with a bizarre virus, turning the innocent children into savage, feral creatures. Steven Schneider is producing with Ace Norton set to direct.

Due Process comes from director Paul Currie, who is working from a script by Anthony Derrico. The story revolves around two bankers who set out to foreclose on a rural farm. Mark Holder, Christine Holder, and Mark Williams are producing, with shooting scheduled to begin in January.
