"With the acquisition of 'Beach Party,' we continue to fulfill our business plan of acquiring and distributing up to 12 feature films per year, while at the same time producing our original National Lampoon slate," worldwide distribution president Tom Daniels said.
The film, which premiered at last year's Los Angeles Film Festival, is set 20 years in the future after the fall of the U.S.
It was written by and stars Kevin Wheatley, who also co-directed with Jonny Gillette. Jamie Bullock produced and also stars. Scott Addison Clay is an associate producer.
The film will be released under the title "National Lampoon Presents Beach Party at the Threshold of Hell" in the fall through National Lampoon Releasing and will be distributed to home video in the first quarter of 2008 through National Lampoon Home Entertainment.
