North American rights to Jacob Vaughan’s horror comedy Milo went to Magnet Releasing before SXSW officially closed last weekend, marking another genre-leaning sale out of Austin, reports Deadline.
Ken Marino stars in the Duplass Bros.-produced pic as a man who has a demon living in his colon that attacks those around him when he’s anxious. Gillian Jacobs, Patrick Warburton, Mary Kay Place, Stephen Root, and Peter Stormare co-star.
“The film centers on a man (Marino) with intense stomach trouble who horror that he actually has a demon living inside his intestines. When he gives it permission to come out during a therapy session, the man names it Milo and tries to live a life in which he, not his demon, is in charge.”
Magnet is targeting a release later this year.
