IFC Midnight has picked up the US theatrical rights to the upcoming The Pact 2, written and directed by Dallas Hallam and Patrick Horvath. The film stars Camilla Luddington (“True Blood,” “Greys Anatomy”), Patrick Fischler (2 Guns, Mulholland Drive), Scott Michael Foster (“Californication,” “Greek”), Haley Hudson (The Pact, Freaky Friday), Mark Steger (The Pact, I Am Legend) and Caity Lotz (The Pact, The Machine).
IFC Midnight acquired and released the original The Pact after it premiered in Sundance in 2012. The sequel is set just weeks after Annie Barlow’s deadly confrontation with the Judas Killer. In this elevated sequel, we meet June, a woman whose carefully constructed life is beginning to unravel due to lucid nightmares so awful they disturb her waking life.
“We are so thrilled to be working with our friends at Preferred Film & TV and Content on the sequel to ‘The Pact,’” says Jonathan Sehring, president of IFC Entertainment. “It’s exciting to forge a continuing partnership with such a talented team.”
“Dallas and Patrick did a tremendous job taking the world of ‘The Pact’ to the next level,” adds Producer Ross Dinerstein, “and we are thrilled that IFC Midnight is back to distribute. ‘The Pact 2′ will satisfy fans even more than the first one.”
The Pact 2 is produced by Preferred Film & TVs Ross M. Dinerstein and executive produced by Contents Jamie Carmichael and Nicholas McCarthy.
