Cannes: A24 Buys Zoe Kazan’s ‘There Are Monsters’ for U.S.

Atlas Independent and Unbroken Pictures have sold horror film “There Are Monsters,” starring Zoe Kazan, to A24 for U.S. distribution.

The film will be directed by Bryan Bertino from his own script. Embankment Films is selling the feature to international territories at the Cannes Film Festival.

Kazan will play a mother who, along with her terrified young daughter, is trapped and tormented by a merciless creature — with only a mother’s protective love, her most primal instinct, able to save them.

William Green and Aaron Ginsburg of Atlas Independent, an affiliate of Charles Roven’s Atlas Entertainment, will produce with Adrienne Biddle of Unbroken Pictures. Atlas Entertainment’s Richard Suckle will be exec producing alongside Sonny Mallhi.

Production will start this summer in Ottawa, Canada.

Kazan’s credits include “Olive Kitteridge” and “Ruby Sparks.” Bertino previously wrote and directed “The Strangers,” which grossed $85 million worldwide.

UTA Independent Film Group brokered the A24 and Embankments deal on behalf of the producers. Bertino is represented by UTA. Kazan is represented by UTA and Washington Square Films.
