Sundance 2013: EOne buys horror thriller 'We Are What We Are'

Posted on

Another Sundance acquisition! Entertainment One confirmed that it’s finalized a deal for director Jim Mickle’s We Are What We Are and will release the horror thriller in theaters later this year. The film, a retelling of the 2010 Mexican film by the same name, is about a wholesome-seeming family living in flood-ravaged Castkills, led by a patriarch (Bill Sage) hiding a taste for macabre tradition. Ambyr Childers, Julia Garner, Jack Gore, Kelly McGills, and Michael Parks co-star.

In a press release, eOne vp Dylan Wiley says: “We’re so very excited to add We Are What We Are to our U.S. slate. Jim Mickle’s talent was obvious in Mulberry Street and Stake Land, but this film fulfills his vision on a whole new level and will put him in his rightful place among the masters of genre filmmaking. It will be our pleasure to introduce him to an even wider fan base and we’re confident that audiences will eat up the film.”

EW has an exclusive photo from the film (see it here) and our own Clark Collis recently spoke with Jim Mickle about the new film.
