Screen Daily reports on our new title IT FOLLOWS:
‘EXCLUSIVE: Ryan Kampe will commence sales at AFM next week on David Robert Mitchell’s follow-up to The Myth Of The American Sleepover.
It Follows has begun production in and around Detroit in Mitchell’s native Michigan state and stars Maika Monroe, Keir Gilchrist and Daniel Zovatto.
Northern Lights Films and Animal Kingdom are financing the project, described as ‘a terrifying coming-of-age nightmare about sex, love and the unseen horrors that follow us.’ Rebecca Green and Laura D Smith will produce alongside Erik Rommesmo for Northern Lights, David Kaplan for Animal Kingdom and Mitchell. Frederick W Green, Jeff Schlossman, and P Jennifer Dana serve as executive producers. It Follows marks Animal Kingdom’s first feature since Short Term 12, winner of this year’s SXSW grand jury prize and Los Angeles Film Festival audience award.
‘David has, once again, written an amazing script that takes his arthouse sensibilities and mashes it up with some psychologically terrifying filmmaking,’ said Visit Films president Kampe. ‘This is the perfect commercial crossover project for him.’
Visit previously handled sales on The Myth Of The American Sleepover (pictured), which screened in Cannes Critics Week and earned a special jury prize following its SXSW premiere. IFC Films distributed in the US.’
