Rocket, Big Air acquire chiller ’11-11-11′

Bousman horror-thriller to be realeased Nov. 11 in 15 major markets

Rocket Releasing and Big Air Studios have acquired North American distribution rights to Darren Bousman’s horror-thriller “11-11-11” — and plan to release the pic on Nov. 11 in 15 major U.S. markets.

In “11-11-11,” Timothy Gibbs portrays an American author who travels to Barcelona to reunite with his estranged brother and dying father but discovers his life is plagued by events that always occur at 11:11.

Michael Landes, Wendy Glenn and Brendan Price also star.

Bousman, whose credits include “Repo: The Genetic Opera” and the second, third and fourth “Saw” pics, wrote the script for “11-11-11,” with Wayne Rice and Richard Heller producing.

“We feel this movie captures the essence of classic demonic horror films and will play well across all platforms,” said Big Air Studios prexy Marc Sternberg.

“11-11-11” will open against wide releases of Relativity’s “Immortals,” Sony’s “Jack and Jill” and Warner Bros.’ “J. Edgar.”

The deal was negotiated by Marc Sternberg and Michael Arrieta from Big Air Studios, with Dan Griffiths from Rocket Releasing and Verve’s Adam Levine, representing the filmmakers.
