SF Indie selection “I DECLARE WAR” picked up by Drafthouse Films!
EXCLUSIVE: Drafthouse Films, the distribution arm of the Alamo Drafthouse, has snatched up I Declare War, a kid-centered actioner about an epic game of capture-the-flag that comes alive through its young characters’ vivid imaginations. The pic, directed by Jason Lapeyre and Robert Wilson and produced by Lewin Webb, Robert Wilson and Patrick Cameron for Samaritan Entertainment, nabbed the Fantastic Fest Audience Award and earned raves out of the 2012 Toronto Film Festival. “Not since Stand By Me have we experienced such a poignant and sincere film about kids for adults,” Drafthouse Films CEO/Founder Tim League said in a statement. “Armed with an arsenal of extremely talented child actors and combining shades of Full Metal Jacket and Lord Of The Flies, Jason and Rob have created a one-of-a-kind action film that we couldn’t be more excited to handle in the US.” Drafthouse COO James Emanuel Shapiro and Andrew Herwitz of Film Sales inked the deal. A VOD and theatrical release is planned for the second half of 2013.
I DECLARE WAR screens at SF Indie on Sunday Feb 10th at 7:15pm and Monday Feb 11th at 9:30pm.
