Lionsgate nabs ‘You’re Next’

Studio acquires Adam Wingard's horror thriller

Lionsgate has acquired U.S. and Canadian rights to Adam Wingard’s horror thriller ”You’re Next” following its screenings at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival.

Deal was announced Wednesday.

“You’re Next,” from a script by Simon Barrett, stars Sharni Vinson, Joe Swanberg, A.J. Bowen, Nicholas Tucci and Barbara Crampton.

Snoot Entertainment’s Keith Calder and Jessica Wu produced with Barrett and Kim Sherman.

“You’re Next” reunites the key cast from Wingard and Barrett’s serial-killer thriller “A Horrible Way to Die,” which screened last year at TIFF.

Story for “You’re Next” is set during a family reunion getaway with the family coming under a sadistic attack as a gang of mysterious killers begin to hunt the family down with brutal precision. Unfortunately for the killers however, one of the victims harbors a secret talent for fighting back.

Jason Constantine negotiated the deal on behalf of Lionsgate with Eda Kowan, SVP of Acquisitions and Co-Productions, and Wendy Jaffe, the Acquisitions and Co-Production team’s EVP of Business & Legal Affairs. Snoot Entertainment is repped by CAA, which negotiated the sale on their behalf with Erik Hyman of Loeb & Loeb.

Wingard is managed by Jeremy Platt at Generate.
