Looks like Image Entertainment stepped up to the plate this past weekend at Stanley Film Festival and knocked one out of the park with its quick acquisition of Adam Egypt Mortimer’s Some Kind of Hate. I’ve had my eye on this one for several weeks now, and couldn’t be happier that it has found a home so quickly.
Check out the official Press Release below, along with a new still image and previously released trailer for it’s run at Stanley Film Festival. I have a feeling we’ll be getting a new one soon. There’s no word on a release date at this moment, but we will be sure to feed the information to you as soon as we have it.
“SOME KIND OF HATE has an amazing story that takes audiences for a ride,” said Ward. “We’re thrilled to bring this film to audiences at large after its incredible debut at the Stanley Film Festival.”
SOME KIND OF HATE tells the story of a troubled teen who’s subjected to severe bullying. He accidentally conjures Moira Karp, a teenage girl pushed to commit suicide by bullies years ago. Moira is now a vengeful and unstoppable force on a mission of gruesome retribution. But when she goes too far, Lincoln must prevent her from spiraling out of control in this passionate and vividly violent take on the supernatural slasher.
Produced by Dallas Sonnier, Jack Heller, Amanda Mortimer, and Gabriella Revilla Lugo, the deal was negotiated by Caliber’s Sonnier and Heller on behalf of the filmmakers and Ward on behalf of RLJE/Image Entertainment.
Recent Image Entertainment releases include The Rewrite with Hugh Grant and Marisa Tomei and written & directed by Marc Lawrence; and The Cobbler with Adam Sandler, Cliff “Method Man” Smith, Steve Buscemi and written & directed by Tom McCarthy. Upcoming titles include Burying the Ex starring Anton Yelchin, Ashley Green, Alexandra Daddario and directed by Joe Dante; and the Caliber Media production Dark was the Night with Kevin Durand and Lukas Haas, and directed by Heller.
