Saban Films has revealed a brand new trailer and poster for their darkly comedic thriller COME TO DADDY, the feature debut from acclaimed producer Ant Timpson. The film will be opening in select theaters nationwide and be available on VOD and Digital on February 7, 2020.
Norval Greenwood, a privileged man-child arrives at the beautiful and remote coastal cabin of his estranged father. He quickly discovers that not only is dad a jerk, but he also has a shady past that is rushing to catch up with both of them. Now, hundreds of miles from his cushy comfort zone, Norval must battle with demons, both real and perceived, in order to reconnect with a father he barely knows.
COME TO DADDY stars Elijah Wood (The Lord Of The Rings) as a man in his thirties who receives a cryptic invitation to a remote cabin for a visit with his father after a lifetime of estrangement. The film also stars Stephen McHattie (300), Martin Donovan (“Big Little Lies”), Michael Smiley (The Lobster), Madeleine Sami (Breaker Uppers), and Simon Chin (“Killing Eve”).
The film is directed by Ant Timpson (The Greasy Strangler, Housebound), with a script penned by Toby Harvard (The Greasy Strangler), based on an idea by Ant Timpson.
COME TO DADDY had its world premiere at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival and has wracked up the awards since its world premiere. In our review of the film, we said that, “Honestly, COME TO DADDY is one of the best debut films [we’ve] seen in 2019. It’s incredibly surprising, shockingly funny, and ruthlessly violent.”
