Patrick Stewart’s New Thriller To Show At Toronto Festival
Indie distributor A24 has grabbed up the U.S. rights of The Green Room – a horror thriller starring Patrick Stewart, Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots and Alia Shawkatt.
The Hollywood Reporter tells us that the film has been picked up just ahead of its premier at The Toronto Film Festival next month.
Yelchin, Poots and Shawkatt play members of a punk band that see something very strange at a remote Oregon club. Stewart plays one of the club’s owners who decide that the band members, as a result of what they have seen, must not remain in the land of the living.
The title, directed by Jeremy Saulnier, will feature in the Midnight Madness section of the festival. Saulnier previously directed 2013’s Blue Ruin, in which an outsider ends up protecting his estranged family after returning home to carry out an act of vengeance.
