A24 Buys Worldwide Rights to Daniel Radcliffe’s Farting Corpse Movie ‘Swiss Army Man’

A24 has acquired worldwide rights to Sundance Film Festival award winner “Swiss Army Man,” starring Daniel Radcliffe and Paul Dano.

The company previously acquired North American rights after the film’s premiere in January. A24 has scheduled the film for domestic release on June 17 in New York and Los Angeles, with a nationwide expansion to follow on July 1.

The company will partner with distributors and platforms to market and release the film globally.

Swiss Army Man” won the best director prize at Sundance for Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert.

A24 said, “In our short history, we have seen great success from releasing bold, original films that have distinct and cut-through storytelling and talented young cast who connect with their audience. The Daniels are visionaries and have created one of the most original, funny and heartfelt movies we’ve seen in a long time. It’s exactly what smart younger audiences around the world want.”

The film follows Dano’s character, stranded on a deserted island, who meets a farting corpse (played by Radcliffe) that washes up on shore one day. The two become friends and take an epic journey together that eventually leads Dano’s Hank back to the woman of his dreams.

The surreal comedy evoked divisive reactions among critics. A24 released a trailer on Monday.
