After premiering in Toronto this past summer and a UK release last month, John Carpenter’s return to feature filmmaking has finally secured U.S. distribution!
ARC entertainment, partnered with XLrator Media have acquired the film, which sees genre starlet Amber Heard (ALL THE BOYS LOVE MANDY LANE, DRIVE ANGRY) confined to the titular section of a mental institution in the 1960′s, one that’s set upon by an evil spectre.
XLrator Media’s Barry Gordon said, “We are proud to be a part of John Carpenter’s long-awaited return to the big screen. John is one of the most renowned filmmakers in the world and THE WARD is a great addition to an already legendary career.”
“We’re thrilled to find a vibrant home with ARC Entertainment and XLrator Media, a partnership that is fast being recognized as a place where innovation in marketing and distribution is happening,” said producer Mike Marcus, of Echo Lake Entertainment. “Their excitement for the film, combined with their creative approach to bringing this film to audiences, makes them the perfect partner to release this film.”
No word yet on a date, or the size of release, but this is exciting nonetheless!
