Joe Dante's Burying the Ex eyes summer VOD release

Burying the Ex

Good news has come our way for Joe Dante’s undead horror-comedy BURYING THE EX as The Wrap reports that Image Entertainment has acquired all U.S. rights to the film. Right now it’s slated for a theatrical and VOD release sometime this summer, so expect an exact date soon.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with legendary filmmaker Joe Dante. He brings a unique vision and style to ‘Burying the Ex.’ We are confident that his fans and the genre community will embrace the film,” said Mark Ward, RLJ Entertainment’s senior VP of acquisitions for the Image brands.

BURYING THE EX follows...

…Max (Yelchin), an all-around nice guy, and his overbearing but incredibly beautiful girlfriend, Evelyn (Greene). Their relationship takes a nosedive after they decide to move in together and Evelyn turns out to be a controlling, manipulative nightmare. Max knows it’s time to call it quits, but there’s just one problem: he’s terrified of breaking up with her. Fate steps in when Evelyn is involved in a freak accident and dies, leaving Max single and ready to mingle. Max eventually meets Olivia (Daddario), a cute and spirited girl who just might be his soul mate, only to learn that Evelyn has risen from her grave and is determined to get her boyfriend back…even if that means turning him into one of the undead.

BURYING THE EX stars Anton Yelchin, Alexandra Daddario and Ashley Greene. It was was produced by Scooty Woop Entertainment’s Mary Cybriwsky and Frankie Lindquist, Carl Effenson, David Johnson, Kyle Tekiela and Trezza.
