Myriad Pictures has made a deal to handle international sales for Hangman, the Jeremy Sisto-starring found-footage horror movie that premiered this year at SXSW. The pic will be the flagship title of Myriad’s new genre label Scoundrel that will launch officially this week at the Toronto Film Festival. Scoundrel titles — spanning thriller, horror and action fare — will be sold alongside Myriad’s current slate and will be handled by the Myriad sales team.
Alchemy has already acquired domestic rights had will release it in the U.S. in February 2016. Adam Mason directed and co-wrote the script with Simon Boyes, and Kate Ashfield, Ty Simpkins and Ryan Simpkins co-star. The pic tells the story of the Miller family, who return from vacation to find that their home has been broken into. After cleaning up the mess they continue with their lives, shaking off the feeling of being violated. But little do they know the nightmare has just begun and the intruder is still there, playing insidious tricks on them and watching their every move via scattered tiny surveillance cameras from his hiding place in the attic.
Myriad’s SVP Marketing & Acquisitions Audrey Delaney the sales deal with Gersh’s Jay Cohen on behalf of the filmmakers.
