WWE Studios announced today it has acquired all US distribution rights to the Toronto International Film Festival cult hit The Day, Doug Aarniokoski’s visceral action thriller. The film screened to sold-out crowds in the Midnight Madness section of the Festival.
Aarniokoski is currently directing the Lionsgate film Nurse 3D. The Day is a nightmarish 24 hour look into the lives of a band of survivors fighting to stay alive in a post-apocalyptic world.
The Day stars Shawn Ashmore (X-Men Trilogy, Mother’s Day), Ashley Bell (The Last Exorcism), Michael Eklund (Watchmen, 88 Minutes), Cory Hardrict (Battle Los Angeles, Gran Torino), Dominic Monaghan (“Lost,” Lord of the Rings), and Shannyn Sossamon (One Missed Call, A Knight’s Tale, Road to Nowhere). The film features music by Rock Mafia.
The film was written by Luke Passmore and produced by Guy A. Danella.
