Cinedigm Entertainment Group and New Video have partnered to acquire U.S. distribution rights to Citadel (review), from first-time writer-director Ciaràn Foy, THR writes. The Ireland-set horror film had its world premiere at the 2012 SXSW Film Festival, where it won the Midnighter Audience Award. Citadel is the first scripted acquisition under the recently announced partnership between the two companies.
“In ‘Citadel,’ a young father suffering from agoraphobia must face the gang of twisted, hooded feral children responsible for his wife’s murder.” Aneurin Barnard, James Cosmo, Wunmi Mosaku, Jake Wilson and Amy Shiels star.
Cinedigm (The Ward) launches its theatrical distribution arm in the fall, while New Video will roll out the titles across on-demand, digital and DVD/Blu-ray beginning in early 2013.
