IFC Midnight announced today that the company is acquiring all rights in North America, Latin America, the United Kingdom, France and Germany to director David Guy Levy’s thriller WOULD YOU RATHER. The film, written by Steffen Schlachtenhauffen, stars Brittany Snow, Jeffrey Combs, Lawrence Gilliard, Jr., John Heard, Sasha Grey, Enver Gjokaj and Jonny Coyne.
We've been following the flick's progress since it entered production last summer.
In Levy’s dark but often funny thriller, Iris struggles in the wake of her parent’s death to make ends meet while caring for her terminally ill younger brother. Shepard Lambrick, a seemingly philanthropic aristocrat, expresses an interest in helping them. When he invites her to an exclusive dinner party, she accepts. Also attending the dinner party are seven more desperate individuals. They soon find themselves trapped in Lambrick’s mansion and forced to play a sadistic game of Would You Rather, where the winner will be awarded untold amounts of money. As the game progresses, the dilemmas Iris and the other players face grow increasingly deadly.
IFC is gobbling up the low-budget horror; just a few hours ago, we reported that the company had snatched up the domestic rights to Dario Argento's DRACULA 3D.
