PLAYBACK IS SNATCHED BY MAGNET RELEASING

It could be my insane fondness for PUMP UP THE VOLUME, it could be that I could watch Calrence Worley take down Drexl on a loop, but I am always down for some Christian Slater. He’s one of those actors that I always root for. We just got this news from the Magnet team. They have put out some pretty cool shit this year so I am curious to take a look at this.

PLAYBACK From Celluloid Nightmares

 

New York, NY – Monday, October 10, 2011 – The Wagner/Cuban Company’s Magnet Releasing, genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, announced today they have acquired US rights to PLAYBACK, a frightening horror film featuring Christian Slater, directed by Michael Nickles.

 

 

Magnet will release PLAYBACK through its Ultra VOD program in February, launching the film on all digital VOD platforms prior to its theatrical release in March.

 

 

While digging into their town’s infamous past, a group of high school students unwittingly unlock a dark secret, unleashing an evil spirit that takes possession of its victims. In addition to Slater, the film stars Toby Hemingway, Johnny Pacar and Ambyr Childers.

 

 

“PLAYBACK is very scary and a lot of fun,” said Magnolia/Magnet President Eamonn Bowles. “We think it will be a hit with horror fans.”

 

 

The deal was negotiated for Magnet by SVP of Acquisitions Dori Begley, Director of Acquisitions Peter Van Steemberg, and Head of Legal and Business Affairs Chris Matson with Nate Bolotin from Celluloid Nightmares.

 

 

Lawrence Robbins and John M. Bennett produced “Playback” under their New York production banner, Bennett Robbins Productions.   Bennett Robbins has previously Co-Executive produced MGM’s “The Betrayed,” starring Melissa George, and Co-Executive Produced the romantic comedy “Coming and Going,” directed by Edoardo Ponti and starring Rhys Darby and Sasha Alexander that recently premiered on TNT.
