Image Entertainment, a branch of RLJ Entertainment, the distribution company, has acquired the rights to director Adam Egypt Mortimer’s SOME KIND OF HATE. Co-written by Mortimer and novelist partner Brian DeLeeuw, SOME KIND OF HATE provides a terrifying cautionary tale of what happens when a person — or spirit — becomes consumed by vengeance.
Here’s the synopsis:
SOME KIND OF HATE tells the story of a troubled teen who’s subjected to severe bullying. He accidentally conjures Moira Karp, a teenage girl pushed to commit suicide by bullies years ago. Moira is now a vengeful and unstoppable force on a mission of gruesome retribution. But when she goes too far, Lincoln must prevent her from spiraling out of control in this passionate and vividly violent take on the supernatural slasher.
Produced by Dallas Sonnier, Jack Heller, Amanda Mortimer, and Gabriella Revilla Lugo, the deal was negotiated by Caliber’s Sonnier and Heller on behalf of the filmmakers and Ward on behalf of RLJE/Image Entertainment.
Image Entertainment has picked up many recent titles, such as Joe Dante’s BURYING THE EX, THE COBBLER starring Adam Sandler, Cliff “Method Man” Smith, Steve Buscemi, and Dan Stevens, THE REWRITE with Hugh Grant and Marisa Tomei, DARK WAS THE NIGHT with Kevin Durand and Lukas Haas.
