TIFF 2011: Bobcat Goldthwait's God Bless America Finds Distro
That's right, kids! Bobcat Goldthwait's latest horror film God Bless America has found itself some Stateside distribution at the Toronto International Film Festival. Hopefully this run of good fortune will also have it finding a good poster artist to erase the bad memory of its teaser one-sheet!
Deadline reports that Magnolia Pictures is closing a world rights deal for God Bless America, the Bobcat Goldthwait-directed killing spree comedy. The film premiered over the weekend in the Midnight Madness program. Magnolia will release through Magnet, and the film will be an Ultra VOD title in 2012. That means it will start as a premium VOD title, then play theatrically in at least 25 cities.
The flick stars Joel Murray, Tara Lynne Barr, Mackenzie Brooke Smith, Melinda Page Hamilton, Rich McDonald, and Guerrin Gardner.
Loveless, jobless and possibly terminally ill, Frank has had enough of the downward spiral of America. With nothing left to lose, Frank takes his gun and decides to off the stupidest, cruelest and most repellent members of society with an unusual accomplice: 16-year-old Roxy, who shares his sense of rage and disenfranchisement. From stand-up comedian and director Bobcat Goldthwait comes a scathing and hilarious attack on all that is sacred in the United States of America.
