RADiUS-TWC announced today that it has partnered with the Duplass Brothers and Blumhouse Productions for a full Creep trilogy, following the first films successful SXSW premiere. Creep stars Mark Duplass (Safety Not Guaranteed), who co-wrote the film with Patrick Brice (who makes his directorial debut) and who produced alongside Jason Blum. They’ve also debuted a first image from the new franchise-launcher, which you can check out below.
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.
RADiUS, who acquired worldwide rights to the trilogy, is planning to release Creep later this year.
According to RADiUS co-presidents Tom Quinn and Jason Janego: “We jumped at the opportunity to work with Mark again and Jasons involvement was icing on the cake. ‘Creep’ is wry and unnerving with a shock ending that one has come to expect from Blumhouse. The film played through the roof at SXSW and it was abundantly clear that audiences have a huge appetite for these characters.
Mark Duplass echoes the sentiment: Im a huge fan of the renegade tactics of Blumhouse and RADiUS, and I couldnt be more psyched to partner with them on this utterly insane new franchise.”
Jason Blum goes on to say: 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.
