Are you still with me? Because after being a bit up in the air we now know the movie will see the light of Day; it's headed for a month long run at DirecTV before hitting your local theater; a distribution model that's becoming more and more common. We still don't know exactly when but I have a hunch it's pretty soon. I learned about it via Matthew Rhodes (@Matthew_Rhodes) one of the long list of the movie's producers but he's the one who favorited a tweet of mine about the project, so he's the one I'm mentioning. He's also behind the movie Whiplash starring Miles Teller, worth your googling time.
With Gilles Paquet-Brenner (Wild) directing an impressive cast including not only Charlize Theron as Libby Day but Chloe Grace Moretz as Ben's sleazy girlfriend Diondra, Christina Hendricks as their mother, and Nicholas Hoult as Lyle, the lead member of the creepy 'Kill' club, an amateur sleuth group trying to clear Ben, the thriller should get the viewing it deserves. I'm jazzed because I met up with Andrea Roth on twitter. Ms. Roth — @andrearoth888 — who you probably know best as Janet on Rescue Me — plays the grown up version of Chloe Grace Moretz's Diondra character and she's agreed to do a Q&A with me! If you've got questions, lay 'em on me.
Still no trailer or poster, but now that A24 and DirecTV are officially on board, you can bet your bottom dollar they're coming. At the end of the day, that bottom dollar is what it's all about. My snarks aside, I'm really looking forward to it.
