IFC Midnight nabs rights to ‘Rather’

Pic had its U.S. premiere at Screamfest

IFC Midnight has acquired all rights in North America, Latin America, the U.K., France and Germany to director David Guy Levy’s thriller “Would You Rather.”

The film, written by Steffen Schlachtenhauffen, stars Brittany Snow, Jeffrey Combs, Lawrence Gilliard Jr., John Heard, Sasha Grey, Enver Gjokaj and Jonny Coyne. It was produced by Levy, Zak Kilberg and Maura Anderson, with Snow, Andre Royo and Morgan Conrad exec producing.

Pic had its U.S. premiere at Screamfest in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Story centers on a woman’s struggles in the wake of her parents’ death to make ends meet while caring for her terminally ill younger brother. A seemingly philanthropic aristocrat expresses an interest in helping them, leading to a sadistic game of “Would You Rather.”

The deal was negotiated by Jeff Deutchman for Sundance Selects/IFC Films with Traction Media on behalf of the filmmakers.
