XLrator Media has acquired North American distribution rights to the sci-fi action-thriller The Scribbler, starring Katie Cassidy (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Michelle Trachtenberg (Black Christmas), Eliza Dushku (Wrong Turn), Gina Gershon (Bound), Sasha Grey, Garret Dillahunt (The Last House on the Left, Winter’s Bone, The Road), Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos) and Billy Campbell (The Killing).
XLrator Media will release the film in theaters in Fall 2014.
“The Scribbler follows Suki (Katie Cassidy), a young woman confronting her destructive mental illness using “The Siamese Burn,” an experimental machine designed to eliminate multiple personalities. The closer Suki comes to being “cured,” she’s haunted by a thought… what if the last unwanted identity turns out to be her?“
The film from New Artists Alliance is directed by John Suits and written by Daniel Schaffer, who also penned and illustrated the original 2006 graphic novel on which the film is based.
