Having your movie screened at the annual South by Southwest Festival (SXSW) doesn’t guarantee it’ll be picked up distribution, but it certainly increases your chances! Case in point: Saban Films has just snagged I See You, which screened at the most recent fest last March. The film is directed by Adam Randall and stars Helen Hunt.
I See You takes place in a seemingly perfect town filled with perfect families, until 12-year-old Justin Whitter goes missing. Greg Harper, lead investigator, struggles to balance the pressures of the case while finding a way to forgive his well-heeled wife, Jackie (Hunt), for a recent infidelity. When a malicious presence manifests itself and puts their young son in mortal danger, the cold, hard truth about evil in the Harper household is finally uncovered.
Randall directed I See You from a screenplay penned by Devon Graye; in addition to Hunt, the film stars Jon Tenney, Judah Lewis, and Owen Teague.
We don’t have a trailer or target release date at this time, but we know that Saban is planning a limited theatrical release for I See You in advance of a digital/DVD release. We’ll keep you posted.
