EXCLUSIVE: Sony Pictures’ Stage 6 Films has acquired international rights (outside of China) to the dark comedy Bodies Bodies Bodies, from director Halina Reijn (Instinct).
The film is billed as a fresh and funny look at backstabbing, fake friends, and one party gone very, very wrong. It watches as a game goes awry, when a group of rich 20-somethings arrive for a hurricane party at a remote family mansion. Amandla Stenberg (The Hate U Give), Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm), Myha’la Herrold (HBO’s Industry), Chase Sui Wonders (HBO’s Generation), Rachel Sennott (Shiva Baby), Lee Pace (Halt and Catch Fire) and Pete Davidson (The King of Staten Island) star.
Bodies Bodies Bodies premiered to critical acclaim at the 2022 SXSW Film Festival and is slated for release in the U.S. on August 5th via A24. The film is Reijn’s second on the heels of the thriller Instinct, which was selected as the Dutch entry for Best International Feature Film at the 92nd Academy Awards. Sarah DeLappe wrote the script for Bodies, which was based on a story by Kristen Roupenian. David Hinojosa of 2AM and Ali Herting served as the film’s producers.
