Constance Wu is set to have her big-screen breakout in “Crazy Rich Asians” this weekend. Now fans will get another dose of Wu in the upcoming horror film “All the Creatures Were Stirring.”
RLJE Films said on Friday that it has acquired North American rights to the horror flick, which was written and directed by Blumhouse alums David Ian McKendry and Rebekah McKendry.
In addition to Wu, the film stars Amanda Fuller (“Orange is the New Black”), Jonathan Kite (“2 Broke Girls”), Jocelin Donahue (“Insidious: Chapter 2”) and Graham Skipper (“The Mind’s Eye”).
“All the Creatures Were Stirring” is a Christmas horror film that follows a couple on an awkward date on Christmas Eve that leads them into a strange theater, where they’re treated to a bizarre and frightening collection of Christmas stories, featuring a wide ensemble of characters doing their best to avoid the horrors of the holidays. From boring office parties and last-minute shopping, to vengeful stalkers and immortal demons.
“With scares, laughs and stars from some of the top releases this year, including Constance Wu in ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ and Amanda Fuller in ‘Orange is the New Black,’ ‘All the Creatures Were Stirring has it all,'” RLJE chief acquisitions officer Mark Ward said in a statement. “We’re excited to see how horror fans react to this new holiday horror classic from David and Rebekah McKendry.”
RLJE plans to release the film on video on demand, digital and DVD on Dec. 4.
“All the Creatures Were Stirring” was produced by Morgan Peter Brown and Joe Wicker of FallBack Plan Productions (Absentia) and was executive produced by Kevin Kale.
Ward and Jess De Leo from RLJE negotiated the deal with Morgan Peter Brown and Joe Wicker on behalf of the filmmakers.
