RADiUS-TWC, Blumhouse, Duplass Brothers Team for 'Creep' Trilogy
The two-man psychological thriller, starring Mark Duplass, premiered at South by Southwest.
Here comes more Creep.
RADiUS-TWC, Blumhouse Productions and the Duplass brothers are teaming up for trilogy of Creep films.
The first film, starring Mark Duplass who also co-wrote with Patrick Brice, premiered at the South By Southwest film festival in March. Brice makes his directorial debut with the film. With this announcement, development will commence on a second and third film.
Produced by Jason Blum and Duplass, the found footage-style film follows a man (Duplass) who hires a stranger (Brice) to film him for the day and proceeds to make that day very uncomfortable.
At SXSW, THR's critic John DeFore wrote of the film: "The director fits the role well, spending his few minutes on camera in a state of should-I-be-freaking-out agitation; Duplass shows restraint at the eponymous creep, letting dialogue and staging plant questions he's in no hurry to answer."
"We jumped at the opportunity to work with Mark again and Jason’s involvement was icing on the cake. Creep is wry and unnerving with a shock ending that one has come to expect from Blumhouse. The film played through the roof at SXSW and it was abundantly clear that audiences have a huge appetite for these characters," said a statement from RADiUS co-presidents Tom Quinn and Jason Janego.
RADiUS is also distributing Duplass’ The One I Love, which the company acquired out of Sundance and plans to release on August 15.
Quinn and Janego negotiated the deal with Josh Braun of Submarine.
