IFC Midnight appears to have a nice, creepy little flick to share with us to wrap up 2016. The Autopsy Of Jane Doe will hit on Dec. 20th. No mention if it’s theatrical or VOD but I’m guessing VOD – so keep your eyes open for this one.
Coming at us from director André Øvredal – the man that brought us the amazing Trollhunter a few years back – this one looks like a nonstop freak out. Check out the trailer and then we’ll chat a little more on the other side:
The press release does a great job of handing out all the facts so – let’s have a look at it shall we?
IFC Midnight announced today that the company has acquired US rights to André Øvredal’s THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE from prolific independent entertainment studio IM Global, a subsidiary of Indian conglomerate Reliance ADA. The film, with a screenplay by Ian B. Goldberg and Richard Naing, stars Emile Hirsch (Lone Survivor, Milk, Into the Wild), Brian Cox (Troy, The Bourne Identity 1 & 2, Braveheart) and Ophelia Lovibond (Guardians of the Galaxy). The film was produced by Fred Berger, Eric Garcia, Ben Pugh and Rory Aitken of 42 and was executive produced by IM Global Founder and CEO Stuart Ford, Matt Jackson and Steven Squillante.
In THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE, two coroners – a father and son – receive a mysterious homicide victim with no apparent cause of death. As they attempt to identify the beautiful young “Jane Doe,” they discover increasingly bizarre clues that hold the key to her terrifying secrets.
Notes IFC Midnight: “Following the wit and creepy dread of André Øvredal’s award-winning TROLLHUNTER, we are very excited to bring his English-language debut to US audiences with a terrific Black List screenplay from Ian B. Goldberg and Richard Naing.”
The deal for the film was negotiated with Ford and General Counsel Deborah Zipser at IM Global on behalf of the filmmakers with Arianna Bocco, SVP of Acquisitions for Sundance Selects/IFC Films, and Betsy Rodgers, Senior Vice President of Legal and Business Affairs for Sundance Selects/IFC Films.
Said Ford, “IFC Midnight is the perfect fit for André’s stylish, darkly humorous brand of horror and we’re looking forward to a robust theatrical release of the picture with them.”
Don’t know about you but this one’s making it to my “must see” list.
