Following its Sundance premiere, violent action-horror Mandy has been picked up for US distribution by RLJE Films.
The film – which currently holds a 100% critics’ score on Rotten Tomatoes – comes from director Panos Cosmatos (Beyond the Black Rainbow) and stars the mighty Nicolas Cage as Red Miller, a broken, disturbed man on a mission to hunt down and kill the deranged religious sect who murdered the love of his life.
Starring alongside Cage are Andrea Riseborough (Birdman, Oblivion), Linus Roache (Batman Begins), Richard Brake (31) and cult hero Bill Duke (Predator, Commando). Among the film’s producers is Elijah Wood’s SpectreVision, who have built up a remarkably consistent library of out-there genre flicks of late.
RLJE will put Mandy in US cinemas this summer.
