Shout! Factory Nabs ’80s-set Cult Thriller ‘Jackals’

Stephen Dorff, who is also battling Leatherface sometime this year, is starring in Jackals for Tommy Alastra Productions, which was acquired out of Cannes by Shout! Factory for North American release.

Saw VI and Saw 3D: The Final Chapter director Kevin Greutert helms the ’80s-set psychological thriller that centers on an estranged family who hire a cult de-programmer (Dorff) to get back their teenage son from a murderous cult, only to find themselves under siege when the cultists surround their cabin, demanding the boy back.

Johnathon Schaech (Day of the Dead), Deborah Kara Unger (Silent Hill), Ben Sullivan, Chelsea Ricketts and Nick Roux are also on board to star. Jared Rivet penned the script.

  • Stephen Dorff and Deborah Kara Unger = Good. Johnathan Schaech = Not So Good. We’ll see how it plays out when it gets released(since the premise sounds very promising).
