In an interview with iftn.ie, Producers Paul Valentine and Joe Condren reveal that Lionsgate will be releasing Bog Bodies here the States. Written and directed by Brendan Foley, the film stars Vinnie Jones, Jason Barry, Nora-Jane Noone and Adam Fogerty. When a ‘bog body’ a 2000 year old murder victim preserved in a peat bog is disturbed by developers in rural Ireland, an archaeologist, a hunter and their helpers face the task of sending him back where he came from.
“We have done a deal with Grindstone Entertainment Group who are releasing `Bog Bodies’ through Lionsgate in early 2009,” says Valentine. “Grindstone bought North American rights and it’s a fairly big US deal we did with them. It’s a move in the right direction for our project. The dates that we have might change slightly, they have a slot for us to got out with their five horror films. Lionsgate have bought all rights for the film in North America so they can do what they want with it really, whether it is going to cinema release or straight to DVD we are not sure yet.”
