Well Go USA just paid a ridiculous $2 million for Freaks, the debut film from Zach Lipovsky and Adam B Stein. The two wrote and directed as well as produced the dark sci-fi thriller, which had its World Premiere in the Discovery section at this year’s ongoing Toronto International Film Festival. Rights include North America, UK, Australia/New Zealand, and Latin America.
Starring Emile Hirsch, Bruce Dern, Amanda Crew and introducing Lexy Kolker:
“In the inventive mystery, a disturbed father (Hirsch) locks his 7-year-old daughter in a house, warning her of grave dangers outside. But the mysterious Mr. Snowcone (Dern) convinces the girl to escape and join him on a profound quest for family, freedom, and revenge.”
Here’s the festival trailer that looks like Lenny Abrahamson’s indie hit Room, only with a supernatural twist.
Freaks will get a theatrical release in 2019.
