Dimension Films announced today that they have acquired U.S. distribution rights to the psychological thriller Angry Little God from director Daniel Stamm (The Last Exorcism). IM Global will finance and produce the film, an English-language remake of the Thai thriller 13: Game Of Death (pictured above) alongside Brian Kavanaugh-Jones of Automatik and Kiki Miyake. Jason Blum of Blumhouse (Sinister, Paranormal Activity, Insidious) will executive produce with Somsak Techaratanaprasert.
The film – cowritten by Stamm and David Birke “follows a bright but meek social services coordinator who’s drowning in debt and desperate as he’s about to marry the love of his life. He receives a mysterious phone call informing him that he’s on a hidden camera game show where he must execute 13 tasks to receive a cash prize of over $6,000,000. He accepts the challenge, but even with thousands of dollars suddenly appearing in his bank account, he realizes he’s in over his head. Trapped into the horrors manipulated by unseen spectators, his need to complete the game escalates as the tasks grow more extreme, to a devastating point of no return.”
