Dimension Films announced today that they have acquired U.S. distribution rights to the psychological thriller Angry Little God (originally announced with the title 13) from director Daniel Stamm (The Last Exorcism).
Stamm and his writing partner David Birke adapted the script from the original Thai thriller, 13: Game of Death, which follows a bright but meek social services coordinator whos drowning in debt and desperate as he’s about to marry the love of his life. He receives a mysterious phone call informing him that hes on a hidden camera game show where he must execute 13 tasks to receive a cash prize of over $6,000,000. He accepts the challenge, but even with thousands of dollars suddenly appearing in his bank account, he realizes hes in over his head. Trapped into the horrors manipulated by unseen spectators, his need to complete the game escalates as the tasks grow more extreme, to a devastating point of no return.
I was blown away by Daniel Stamms direction in ‘The Last Exorcism’ and have wanted to work with him ever since, said Bob Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Company. We look forward to bringing his suspenseful ‘Angry Little God’ to American audiences.
Dimension is the perfect distributor for this kind of edgy genre material in the hands of a proven talent like Daniel. Were looking forward to the ride, said IM Global CEO Stuart Ford.
IM Global will finance and produce Angry Little God alongside Brian Kavanaugh-Jones of Automatik and Kiki Miyake. Jason Blum of Blumhouse (Sinister, Insidious, Paranormal Activity) will executive produce with Somsak Techaratanaprasert.
