Freestyle Releasing Sends Out a Friend Request

Social media is a weird friggin’ animal, man. Everyone, everywhere, is now constantly connected by some means or another, and with this fact comes an entirely new boatload of dangers… case in point: Friend Request.

Deadline is reporting that Freestyle Releasing’s first movie since Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios acquired the company last fall has been pegged for release. It will be the horror-thriller Friend Request and will come out in the fourth quarter of 2016.

The film, directed by Simon Verhoeven, stars Alycia Debnam-Carey (“Fear the Walking Dead”) as a college student named Laura who faces unexpected, grave consequences when she unfriends a female loner her high school on social media. Soon after, she and her friends are stalked by a demonic force. The film also stars Brit Morgan, William Moseley, and Connor Paolo.

The project was also penned by Verhoeven with Matthew Ballen and Philip Koch.

International theatrical distribution is being handled by The Exchange, which recently sold territories in Australia/New Zealand, France, Italy, Eastern Europe, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Latin America, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Israel. The film will be distributed by Warner Bros. in the U.K. and Germany.
