Worldwide rights holder Lightning Entertainment has struck a deal with notable New York-based independent distribution company Paladin to handle the theatrical release of the fantastic award-winning horror comedy The Revenant.
Paladin plans to release the film theatrically in August in an initial 10 markets. That same day, the film will be available as a premium V.O.D., as part of an event driven day-and-date Ultra VOD bow through Lightning’s distribution arm, Lightning Media. No exact date is set (why not announce this when you have a date, no?)
A horror comedy in the vein of Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland, “‘The Revenant’ tells the story of a soldier and his slacker best friend who become zombies, and then use their newfound powers to become vigilante crime fighters with hilariously mixed results when their adventures become more complicated and bloody than expected.”
The DVD will be released through Lionsgate under Lightning Media’s on-going partnership with the company.
Starring David Anders (“The Vampire Diaries”) and Chris Wylde (The Ten), The Revenant is written and directed by acclaimed visual effects expert D. Kerry Prior (Phantasm).
