Old Man Rights Purchased By RLJE Films, Releasing October 14th
Old Man is a new horror film starring Stephen Lang, who seems to have the "old person horror" market cornered at the moment. RLJE Films has purchased the rights to release the film and will do so on October 14th. The premise is pretty much the same as the two Don't Breathe films Lang already starred in, except this time, the old man lives in the woods and is not blind. The film will release in theaters, on demand, and on digital services, all on the same day. Also starring in the movie are Marc Senter (Starry Eyes), Liana Wright-Mark (Ocean's 8), and Patch Darragh ("Succession"). Lucky McKee is the director.
