It was way back in 2011 that we told you Joseph O’Brien’s directorial debut Devil’s Mile was finished filming, and all has been quiet on that front since then. Finally, we’ve got new things to report, and it’s all good news!
Phase 4 Films has acquired the North American rights to the flick, which they will be releasing this coming summer. No word yet on specific release details, but you can check out a brand new poster for the film below, which should whet your appetite for the devilish destruction!
Joining David Hayter and Casey Hudecki on this terrifying journey are Maria Del Mar (“24″, Terminal City, Jekyll + Hyde) and Frank Moore (best known to genre fans for his lead role in David Cronenberg’s Rabid, opposite the late Marilyn Chambers) as crimelord Mr. Arkadi, whose machinations set the sinister events of The Devil’s Mile in motion.
A relentlessly-paced hybrid of gritty crime thriller and Lovecraftian supernatural horror, The 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… THE DEVIL’S MILE.
