Joseph Kahn’s latest film Detention is polarizing a lot of today’s audiences. Some love it, some hate it, and some? Well, some are just confused by it. Our friends in the UK will get a chance to see what camp they fall into when the flick appears as part of the Film4 FrightFest!
Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions has picked up worldwide rights to Detention Films’ Detention, which bills itself as an apocalyptic, body-swapping, time-traveling teen romantic comedy.
Detention stars Dane Cook, Josh Hutcherson, Shanley Caswell, Spencer Locke, Parker Bagley, Alison Woods, Walter Perez, and Evan Williams. Look for more soon.
The film follows a 17-year-old who is given detention on the night of her prom. Over the course of the night her friends are murdered by a fictional horror movie icon. It’s said to be in the vein of Scream with elements of Back to the Future (time travel is involved) and classic John Hughes teen films from the 80’s.
