Well Go USA Entertainment announced its acquisition of all North American rights for Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson's THE ENDLESS, a chilling sci-fi/horror hybrid which premiered to rave reviews in the Narrative Feature competition section of the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival. The film will receive a traditional platform theatrical release in early 2018, with a digital and home video release afterwards.
Following their acclaimed debut Resolution and their follow-up, the Lovecraftian modern cult classic Spring, writer/directors Moorhead and Benson star as two brothers who return to the death cult from which they fled a decade ago, only to find that there might be some truth to the group's otherworldly beliefs.
"THE ENDLESS is a film make hand-over-fist with an incredible crew, and ourselves wearing many hats, out of a conviction that audiences truly do want left-of-center, meaningful independent films," said directors Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson. "Well Go throwing their theatrical support behind us shows a shared belief that the box office is more than just superheroes. Audiences will be able to see THE ENDLESS at its best: sound cranked up in a dark theater, sharing the experience with movie lovers like ourselves."
"Justin and Aaron are known for making smart, atmospheric films that challenge audiences while scaring the hell out of them," said Dylan Marchetti, SVP of Acquisitions and Theatrical Distribution for Well Go USA Entertainment. "THE ENDLESS is their most accomplished work yet, and here at Well Go we can't stop talking about it. We can't wait to unleash it on everyone else."
THE ENDLESS was produced by Moorhead, Benson, David Lawson Jr. of Snowfort Pictures, Thomas R. Burke and Leal Naim from Love & Death Productions, and Robert E. Pfaff and Federick A. Pfaff of Pfaff & Pfaff Productions. Moorhead and Benson are represented by CAA. The deal was negotiated by Marchetti on behalf of Well Go USA and Nate Bolotin at XYZ Films on behalf of the filmmakers.
