Great news, folks! Not only did Well Go USA just nab the Mo Brothers' ultraviolent thriller KILLERS for distribution, but The Wrap reports that they are planning a domestic theatrical release for late 2014. We've been anticipating this one for quite some time so it's nice to know that we'll be getting our eyes on KILLERS sooner rather than later. Check out our review of KILLERS right HERE to see what we thought of it!
The deal was brokered by Well Go USA Entertainment president Doris Pfardrescher with XYZ Films’ Nate Bolotin on behalf of the filmmakers. XYZ Films also represents the film’s international distribution rights.
KILLERS follows a Japanese serial killer (Kazuki Kitamura) with a large online following and a disgraced Indonesian journalist (Oka Antara) whose copycat vigilante murders gain him equal notoriety, leading to a showdown.
The Japanese/Indonesian co-production was directed by Timo Tjahjanto and Kimo Stamboel (aka The Mo Brothers), and stars Kazuki Kitamura, Oka Antara, Rin Takanashi, Luna Maya and Ray Sahetapy.
