Outsider Pictures plucks ‘Juan’

Lands U.S. theatrical and sets Miami bow

Outsider Pictures has picked up Cuba-set horror comedy “Juan of the Dead” for U.S. theatrical release.

Film had already been acquired by Focus World, the digital-platforms arm of Focus Features, for release on VOD and DVD, among other formats.

Satire, written and directed by Alejandro Brugues, centers on Juan (Alexis Diaz de Villegas) and a group of friends who attempt to beat back zombies that have invaded Havana.

Outsider will open the film in Miami soon after the Miami Intl. Film Festival, during which the pic will unspool as part of the gala series of the fest that runs March 2-11. The exclusive theatrical run will subsequently screen at Miami Dade College’s Tower Theater.

Focus World’s digital and homevideo release will follow later this year.
