RADiUS announced today that it has acquired U.S. rights to the critical horror hit It Follows written and directed by David Robert Mitchell (The Myth of the American Sleepover) that recently screened in Cannes as part of Critics' Week (RADiUS also bought When Animals Dream out of Critics' Week).

Financed by Animal Kingdom and Northern Lights, the film was produced by Rebecca Green, Laura D. Smith, Mitchell, David Kaplan and Erik Rommesmo. It Follows features an up and coming ensemble cast that includes Maika Monroe (Labor Day), Keir Gilchrist (It's Kind of a Funny Story), Daniel Zovatto »

RADiUS Acquires Rights to Acclaimed Cannes Horror 'It Follows'

3 June 2014 8:39 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

RADiUS has acquired the U.S. rights to critical horror darling "It Follows," written and directed by David Robert Mitchell ("The Myth of the American Sleepover"). The film was well received at its world premiere at Cannes just a few weeks ago. This is great news for fans of intelligent indie horror, a rare subgenre. In his Indiewire review, Eric Kohn called the film a "strange and menacing supernatural story that offers its fair share of allegorical depth," admiringly adding, "Even its calculated scares come from a real place." "It Follows" features a fresh cast of up-and-comers, including Maika Monroe ("Labor Day"), Keir Gilchrist ("It's Kind of a Funny Story"), Daniel Zovatto ("Laggies"), Jake Weary ("Zombeavers"), Olivia Luccardi ("Girls") and Lili Sepe ("Spork"). It is set to be released in the first quarter of 2015.According to RADiUS co-president Tom Quinn, "American horror has an extraordinary new voice in David Robert Mitchell. »

First Look: New Films Starring Ryan Reynolds, Nicholas Hoult, Brit Marling, Asa Butterfield, Kit Harington & More

16 May 2014 11:16 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The Cannes Film Festival is in full swing, and that means lots of deals, attachments, signings, news and yes, first looks. And there’s a bunch. First up is probably our most anticipated of the lot because of the filmmakers involved. Here’s a first look at “Mississippi Grind” from Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, the directors of “Half Nelson” and “Sugar.” They stumbled a little with “It's Kind of a Funny Story,” but everyone can stumble when your taste seems to be as omnivorous and diverse as theirs (they’ve done a drama, a sports film and a mental illness comedy so far). In a movie about con-men and gamblers, Ryan Reynolds and Ben Mendelsohn feature as a pair of “oddball strangers” who hit the road together to try to make a high-stakes poker tournament in New Orleans. Evidently the influences included ‘70s classics like Robert Altman’s “California Split »

Zach Galifianakis Joins Christoph Waltz for 'Tulip Fever' Adaptation

14 May 2014 1:04 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following a breakthrough role in The Hangover, comedian Zach Galifianakis became quite a hot commodity, though some of his roles felt like they were studio attempts to softly cash in on the actor's odd comedic sensibilities and throw him at mainstream audiences. The only role that didn't feel like a cheap gimmick was his surprisingly dramatic turn in It's Kind of a Funny Story, but it sounds like we might get another worthwhile performance from the comedian soon. Screen Daily counts Galifianakis amongst the cast for director Justin Chadwick's film adaptation of Deborah Moggach's period novel Tulip Fever. For those who may not be familiar with the book, here's the official synopsis: In 1630s Amsterdam, tulipomania has seized the populace. Everywhere men are seduced by the fantastic exotic flower. But for wealthy merchant Cornelis Sandvoort, it is his young and beautiful wife, Sophia, who stirs his soul. She is the prize he desires, »

Interview: Emma Roberts Talks 'Adult World,' Working With John Cusack & More

19 February 2014 11:54 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

At just 23, Emma Roberts (“It's Kind of a Funny Story,” “The Art of Getting By,” “Celeste and Jesse Forever”) is about the same age her aunt Julia was when she shot to stardom with the iconic hit “Pretty Woman.” But times have changed, and in Emma’s latest rom-com — Scott Coffey’s “Adult World,” which premiered last year at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival — she plays not a hooker with a heart of gold, but a virginal Syracuse graduate. Roberts is Amy, a post-collegiate aspiring poet who lives in snowy upstate New York with her parents; what she lacks in life experience she makes up for in pluck and aspiration. Her inability to be self-sufficient will feel familiar to a lot of 20-somethings, as today’s economy has created a state of delayed adulthood; coming-of-age so rarely happens at 18 anymore. When Amy’s parents pull the financial plug on her dreams »
