Gravitas Ventures, a Red Arrow Studios company, has acquired the North American distribution rights to the horror-adventure film Shortcut.
Directed by Alessio Liguori and written by Daniele Cosci, Shortcut stars Jack Kane, Zak Sutcliffe, Andrei Claude, Sophie Jane Oliver, and Terence Anderson. The film is produced by Simona Ferri, Marco Tempera, and Robert Cipullo.
Shortcut will open nationwide across North America (USA/Canada) at drive-ins and indoor theatres on September 25th (with Thursday night previews), followed by a VOD and digital release on December 22nd.
Shortcut follows a group of five classmates trapped inside their school bus after a mysterious creature invades the road. Every passing minute decreases their survival chances against the constant threats of that unknown entity.
The deal was negotiated on behalf of Brett Rogalsky on behalf of Gravitas Ventures and by Monica Ciarli on behalf of Minerva Pictures International.
“Gravitas is thrilled to be able to share with audiences Shortcut,” says Brett Rogalsky of Gravitas Ventures Acquisitions. “This is a film that audiences are sure to be drawn to as it will not only be an exciting theatrical experience but should also be an iconic entry into the horror genre for years to come.”
