Comic-Con: Horror Movie 'Grace' Picked Up by Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions
Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions has picked up Grace, a first-person horror thriller being produced by Automatic, Oddfellows Entertainment and Colony Pictures.

The movie, which Chan co-wrote with Chris Pare, is told through the eyes of an oppressed teen named Grace, who is tormented and plagued by ungodly forces.
Alexia Fast, last seen in Jack Reacher, is starring as Grace. Alan Dale, Lin Shaye, Alexis Knapp, Joel David Moore and Clarke Peters round out the cast.
Brian Kavanaugh-Jones of Automatik, one of the companies behind Sinister and the Insidious franchise, is producing, as is Oddfellows’ Chris Ferguson. Colony Pictures’ Chan and IM Global CEO Stuart Ford are executive producing.
"Jeff Chan impressed us with his unique vision for Grace, and we came on board as soon as we read the script,” said Joe Matukewicz, SPWA’s senior vp acquisitions.
Chan is repped by ICM, Management 360 and Jackoway Tyerman.
