AFM ’11: Image Acquires ‘Blair Witch’ Director’s ‘Lovely Molly’

Lovely MOlly

Image Entertainment has acquired U.S. distribution rights to Lovely Molly (review), the thriller directed by Blair Witch Project co-director Eduardo Sanchez.

The deal is high six figures and the plan is to release theatrically next spring, says Deadline. Lovely Molly made its debut in the Midnight Madness section of the 2011 Toronto Film Festival.

Newcomer Gretchen Lodge plays the title character, a newlywed who returns to her long abandoned family home and is his with scary reminders of her nightmarish childhood that quickly color her new life. She descends into an evil that is part psychosis and another part obsession.
