Anchor Bay Picks Up Kaare Andrews' Monster Movie Altitude
It was announced yesterday that Anchor Bay Entertainment has picked up US distribution rights to Kaare Andrews' Altitude, the mid-air monster movie that we've featured the trailer for previously. No release date has been set yet, but I'm hoping this means we'll see it by the end of the year, since we've been waiting at least for this already and it looks awesome. Written by Paul A. Birkett, Altitude follows a group of teens on a weekend getaway aboard a small plane that suddenly turns deadly when they encounter a supernatural force. It seems heavily inspired by H.P. Lovecraft, but other than that we don't know really they encounter.
"Anchor Bay has an outstanding reputation for releasing films that provide audiences with the thrills and chills they crave and Altitude is a work that delivers both in a very fresh new way," says Anchor Bay's Kevin Kasha. Altitude is directed by Canadian filmmaker Kaare Andrews, who is making his feature debut after directing a handful of shorts and working as an artist on numerous comic books. The script was written by Paul A. Birkett, of Escape Velocity, Mindstorm and Crash Landing. This stars Jessica Lowndes, Julianna Guill, Ryan Donowho, Landon Liboiron and Jake Weary. Anchor Bay Films has previously released Frozen, After.Life, Spread, and The Slammin' Salmon. We will definitely keep you updated on their release plans!
