LONDON – British low-budget horror movie The Reverend, starring Rutger Hauer and Tamer Hassan, will look to scare up box office in the U.K. and Ireland via AIM-listed indie distributor Metrodome.

The U.K. based distribution banner said it plans a limited theatrical run for the movie from August 3 this year having snapped up U.K. and Irish rights.

The deal was negotiated for Metrodome by head of acquisitions Joel Kennedy and Metrodome acquisitions manager Giles Edwards with the film’s producers Neil Jones and Stuart Brennan.

The movie, directed by Jones and also including Brennan in the cast, details the story of a freshly-trained reverend posted to a rural idyll to work who finds all is not as rosy as it looks.
