Millennium Entertainment, the company behind last year’s release of the Zac Efron-Nicole Kidman movie The Paperboy, has picked up all U.S. rights to Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon horror-comedy Hell Baby.

A fall 2013 VOD launch is planned followed by a theatrical run 30 days later.

SUNDANCE REVIEW: Hell Baby

Garant and Lennon, co-creators of Reno 911!, wrote, directed, produced and star in the film, which also features Rob Corddry, Leslie Bibb, and Michael Ian Black among others.

According to Millennium, the story centers on “an expectant couple who moves into the most haunted fixer-upper in New Orleans -- a house with a demonic curse. Things soon spiral out of control and only the Vatican's elite exorcism team can save them -- or can they?”

Darko Entertainment’s Sean McKittrick and Jeff Culotta, and Principato-Young’s Peter Principato and Paul Young produced with Garant and Lennon. The pic was financed by Darko.
