Well Go USA pays big for psychological thriller Freaks

Freaks Emile Hirsch Zach Lipovsky Adam B. Stein

Following the film's Saturday debut at the Toronto International Film Festival, Well Go USA has paid $2 million for distribution rights to the psychological sci-fi thriller FREAKS, which has nothing to do with the 1932 film of the same title. 

This FREAKS was written and directed by Adam B. Stein and Zach Lipovsky. Lipovsky's previous solo directing credits include the genre films DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER and LEPRECHAUN: ORIGINS. The story Stein and Lipovsky crafted together follows 

a girl who discovers a bizarre and threatening new world behind her front door after she escapes from her paranoid father.

Emile Hirsch, Bruce Dern, Lexy Colker, and Amanda Crew star.

Stein and Lipovsky produced the film with Jordan Barber and Mitchell Waxman. M. Alan Stein, Phil Kim, Eliazbeth Costa de Beauregard Rose, and Rick Alyea executive produced and Mihal Abou-Sayed, Omar Abou-Sayed, Nessa Aref, Dena Bloomgarden Stein, Esther Cohen, Elana Diaz, and Rafael Diaz served as co-executive producers.

Well Go USA now has the rights to release FREAKS in North America, Latin America, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand. They're planning to give the film a major theatrical release in 2019.

FREAKS has gotten some very good reviews after its TIFF screening, so it sounds like Lipovsky's LEPRECHAUN: ORIGINS past shouldn't make us hesitant to check this one out when it's released.
