Back in May we brought you the first clip from production designer-turned-director Tom Hammock's post-apocalyptic thriller THE WELL, which stars Haley Lu Richardson, Booboo Stewart, Jon Gries, and Nicole Fox. Now Deadline has learned that MPI Media Group has acquired U.S. rights to THE WELL, with Dark Sky Films set to release the flick in theaters and on VOD early next year.

Written by Hammock and Jacob Forman, THE WELL goes like this:

At the edge of an expansive barren valley, all that remains of The Wallace Farm for Wayward Youth is a few hollowed-out husks of buildings. Seventeen-year-old Kendal (Haley Lu Richardson) can barely recall when the Oregon valley was still lush. It's been a decade since the last rainfall, and society at large has dried up and blown away. Kendal and the few others that remain barely scrape by, while dreaming of escape. When a greedy water baron lays claim to what little of the precious resource remains underground, Kendal must decide whether to run and hide or bravely fight for the few cherished people and things she has left.

THE WELL also stars Michael McCartney, Michael Welch, Rena Owen, Max Charles, Jacqueline Emerson, Barbara Crampton and Michael Massee.

You can peep the first clip from THE WELL below. We'll update you on when you can expect to see THE WELL hit theaters/VOD as we hear it.
