Radius-TWC has acquired worldwide rights to indie horror-thriller Creep, from Blumhouse Productions and the Duplass brothers. The microbudget two-hander stars Patrick Brice as a videographer who answers an online ad to film a stranger (Mark Duplass) in a remote mountain town for a personal project that turns sinister. Brice co-wrote the pic with Duplass and makes his directorial debut with Creep, which will be released later this year. It marks the first collaboration between Duplass and Jason Blum, who produced the film together and have pacted with Radius-TWC to turn the first film into a full trilogy. The second and third films already are in the works. “I’m a huge fan of the renegade tactics of Blumhouse and Radius, and I couldn’t be more psyched to partner with them on this utterly insane new franchise,” said Duplass. Following Creep‘s SXSW premiere, the duo spoke with Deadline about their surprise creative alliance (read it here). Radius-TWC is also releasing Duplass’s Sundance film The One I Love in August. The company’s co-presidents Tom Quinn and Jason Janego negotiated what I hear was a seven-figure deal with Submarine’s Josh Braun.
