Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions (Insidious, Paranormal Activity) has pre-emptively picked up distribution rights to Peachfuzz, a found-footage movie produced by brothers Mark and Jay Duplass, the indie filmmakers behind Baghead and Jeff, Who Lives at Home.
“Peachfuzz follows a young man who answers a Craigslist ad and gets much more than he bargained for. Other details are being kept secret.”
The movie, which is in post-production, is directed by newcomer Patrick Brice and stars Mark Duplass.
Blumhouse will serve as a partner on the film, making a financial investment and having a stake in it. The company also will work with the pair and film rep firm Submarine on Peachfuzz’s distribution and marketing.
