Gravitas Ventures recently picked up the U.S. rights to JAMIE MARKS IS DEAD, from THE RUINS director Carter Smith, and it will hit theaters as well as VOD platforms this August 29th. In anticipation of its release later this summer, Fangoria snagged an all new poster for the ghost story that asks: How far would you go to be remembered? The poster itself is simple and very striking as we see the lifeless body of the titular character laying in a pile of leaves. Check it out below!
Smith hasn't been behind the camera of a feature film since 2008's THE RUINS, so hopefully the long wait will be well worth it. JAME MARKS IS DEAD is looking pretty solid and I can't wait to see what this psychological coming-of-age tale has in store.
Here’s the official synopsis:
In a wintry small town, the body of a teenager named Jamie Marks is found by the river. Adam, the star of his cross-country team, becomes fascinated with Jamie—a boy nobody really knew or interacted with, except occasionally to bully him. When Jamie’s ghost begins to appear both to Adam and Gracie, the classmate who discovered the body, Adam is caught between two worlds. He has a budding romance with Gracie, but he also feels a deep connection to Jamie, who brings him closer to the world of the undead.
Cameron Monaghan, Noah Silver, Morgan Saylor, Madison Beaty, Judy Greer and Liv Tyler all star.
