The film is the latest addition to the new banner, which operates under the umbrella of Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group.
Stage 6 plans to distribute 10-15 films per year with budgets of $10 million or less. Whether the films will be released theatrically or straight to DVD is not decided beforehand.
The new April Fool's revolves around a party given by two uber rich siblings, played by Taylor Cole (Supernatural) and Josh Henderson (Desperate Housewives), for their friend (Scout Taylor-Compton of Halloween). Tragedy strikes when a friend falls over a balcony and dies. One by one, each partygoer is found dead.
Frank Mancuso Jr. and Tara Craig are producing. The Butcher Brothers team of Mitch Altieri and Phil Flores are directing. The duo, whose credits include last year's The Hamiltons, also wrote the screenplay with Mikey Wigart.
