IFC Midnight has acquired North American Rights for 68 Kill, a violent, anarchic road movie written and directed by Troma alumnus and Cheap Thrills writer Trent Haaga.
An adaptation of Bryan Smith’s novel, 68 Kill stars Matthew Gray Gubler (Excision, Life After Beth) as Chip, who goes along with a series of increasingly bad deeds after agreeing to help his violent, nihilistic girlfriend Liza (The Haunting of Molly Hartley’s AnnaLynne McCord) steal $68,000.
Haaga scooped up the Best Midnighter Audience Award following the film’s premiere at this year’s SXSW Festival.
Expect both US theatrical and VOD releases later in the year.
