We Are What We Are Remake Finds U.S. Distribution

Jim Mickle, the director of Stake Land, debuted We Are What We Are, his remake of Jorge Grau’s film, at Sundance and it didn’t take long for it to find a home.

According to Deadline, eOne picked up the distribution rights and is planning a theatrical release.  It’s still, obviously, too early to tell when the film will bow.

Mickle’s latest stars Julia Garner, Ambyr Childers and Bill Sage.  

Two New Images from the We Are What We Are Remake

One of the films making its premiere during Sundance’s Park City at Midnight line-up is We Are What We Are, a remake of Jorge Michael Grau’s Mexican film of the same name.  Today, ShockTillYouDrop.com has received two new stills from the production.  This in addition to the photo we received a few weeks ago (which you see to the right).

Directed by Stake Land’s Jim Mickle, the film stars Julia Garner, Ambyr Childers and Bill Sage.  In the film, a a seemingly wholesome and benevolent family, the Parkers have always kept to themselves, and for good reason.  Behind closed doors, patriarch Frank (Sage) rules his family with a rigorous ferver, determined to keep his ancestral customs intact at any cost.  As a torrential rainstorm moves into the area, tragedy strikes and his daughters Iris (Childers) and Rose (Garner) are forced to assume responsibilities that extend beyond those of a typical family.
