Screen Daily reports that Icon Film Distribution has acquired the UK rights to Play Dead, a new horror film from director Patrick Lussier (My Blood Valentine 3D). The film will debut on the Icon Film Channel on February 13th before getting a theatrical release in the UK on March 17th.

Bailee Madison (The Strangers: Prey at Night) and Jerry O’Connell (Piranha 3D) star in Play Dead. The film follows “criminology student Chloe (Madison), who fakes her own death to break into a local morgue to steal a piece of evidence that ties her younger brother to a crime. Once inside she discovers the coroner is using the business as a front to sell body parts.

“When the coroner discovers Chloe is not dead a game of cat-and-mouse ensues.”

The cast for Play Dead also includes Anthony Turpel, Chris Butler, Chris Lee, and Jorge-Luis Pallo. Adam Mason and Simon Boyes wrote the script.
