TIFF 2011: You're Next Causes Bidding War
It always pleases us to see the indie filmmaker make good, and while nothing is set in stone just yet, one thing is for sure ... Adam Wingard's You're Next is one of the hottest properties at this year's Toronto International Film Festival!
According to The Hollywood Reporter the horror thriller directed by Adam Wingard had its Toronto premiere Saturday night, playing before a crowd that at times pressed against the seats in suspense, tensely gripped handles, laughed, and cheered when someone bit the dust in a magnificent fashion.
But the real action took place in the lobby and outside the doors of the Ryerson Theatre, where Lionsgate executives, including chief Joe Drake, huddled on one side, while Summit's Erik Feig paced like a tiger on the other. Weinstein Co. and CBS Films execs were seen on phones, and this being at 2:30 AM, they likely weren't calling their buddies. The buyer interest in the movie wasn't just high, it bordered on salivation.
So who'll get it? Stay tuned!
A Horrible Way to Die's Adam Wingard directed the film starring Nick Tucci, Wendy Glenn, AJ Bowen, Joe Swanberg, Margaret Laney, Amy Seimetz, Ti West, Calvin Reeder, Larry Fessenden, Kate Lyn Sheil, Barbara Crampton, Rob Moran, and Sharni Vinson.
In 'You're Next' the Davison family comes under attack from a terrifying group of sadistic murderers during a family reunion getaway. Barricaded in their secluded vacation home, they fight off a barrage of axes, crossbows and machetes from both inside and outside the house. However, the masked killers didn't count on Erin (Vinson), the young girlfriend of the eldest Davison son whose mysterious past has made her very difficult to kill.
