Phase 4 Films has acquired North American rights to writer-director Joseph O’Brien’s crime/horror hybrid thriller Devil’s Mile and will be bringing the film to all media channels in Summer 2014.
To coincide with this news, the filmmakers have also released the first look at the movie’s key art, illustrated by award-winning poster artist Justin Erickson (whose artwork for the upcoming Godzilla reboot hit the #2 spot in Entertainment Weekly’s top ten posters for 2013).
“A relentlessly-paced hybrid of gritty crime thriller and supernatural horror, Devil’s Mile follows a trio of kidnappers who take an ill-advised detour en route to deliver their hostages — two teenage girls — to their mysterious and powerful employer. When they accidentally kill one of the girls during a botched escape attempt, their simmering mistrust explodes into shocking violence. But what they thought was their worst case scenario is only the beginning, as they are engulfed by the hellish forces that haunt the road — a road they realize they may never escape. Now captors and captive must fight together to escape the monstrous forces pursuing them and somehow survive Devil’s Mile.”
Devil’s Mile stars David Hayter (writer of box office blockbusters X-Men, X2, The Scorpion King and Watchmen), Maria Del Mar (24, Terminal City, Looking Is The Original Sin), Casey Hudecki (Vampire Conspiracy, Wolves, Nikita) and Frank Moore (David Cronenberg’s Rabid) and features music by The Tragically Hip and Sphinxs. It marks the directorial debut of screenwriter Joseph O’Brien (Robocop: Prime Directives, Revolution On The Planet Of The Apes, Cut Throats Nine).
