RADiUS-TWC has partnered with the Duplass Brothers and Blumhouse Productions to ‘Creep’ audiences with the horror comedy’s release. The studio has also announced that following the psychological thriller’s well-received premiere at this year’s SXSW, the highly praised film will be the first entry in a planned trilogy.
‘Creep’ stars Mark Duplass, who co-wrote the film with Patrick Brice, who made his directorial debut with the thriller. The actor also produced the movie, which will be released later this year by RADiUS, who acquired worldwide rights to the trilogy.
Duplass expressed his excitement over the union, saying “I’m a huge fan of the renegade tactics of Blumhouse and RADiUS, and I couldn’t be more psyched to partner with them on this utterly insane new franchise.”
Blum, who is known for producing the ‘Paranormal Activity,’ ‘Insidious’ and ‘Sinister’ franchises, said “Mark and Patrick made a smart, fresh and terrifying film and we are excited to partner with RADiUS-TWC on sharing it with audiences while we continue to expand the ‘Creep’ world.”
RADiUS has released the following synopsis for ‘Creep’:
Looking for work, Aaron (Brice) comes across a cryptic online ad: $1,000 for the day. Filming service. Discretion is appreciated.
Low on cash and full of naiveté he drives to a cabin in a remote mountain town where he meets Josef (Duplass), his cinematic subject for the day. Josef is sincere and the project seems heartfelt, so Aaron begins to film. But as the day goes on, it becomes clear that Josef may not be who he says.
