SXSW 2013: New Image Home to Some Cheap Thrills; Distro News for the Film
Hot on the heels of yesterday's one-sheet premiere for E.L. Katz's South by Southwest offering Cheap Thrills, we have a new still for you guys to peep or scope or whatever it is you weirdos do with your eyes. Dig it!
But first, we have some news that international sales agent Films Distribution has acquired the foreign sales rights to Cheap Thrills, the economy themed thriller opening the Midnighters program at SXSW. Paris-based Films Distribution has a long history of handling elevated genre films that have been worldwide successes, such as Alex de la Iglesia’s visionary The Last Circus, Franck Richard’s flesh-eating party film The Pact, and Benjamin Rocher’s French urban zombie film The Horde.
U.S. sales will be handled by Josh and Dan Braun of Submarine Entertainment.
The E.L. Katz directed film stars David Koechner, Ethan Embry, Amanda Fuller, and Innkeepers costars Pat Healy and Sara Paxton.
The script by Trent Haaga (Deadgirl) and David Chirchirillo tells the story of a new father facing eviction whose life is turned upside down when he meets a wealthy couple who offer him a path to a better life... but at a price.
