SHORTCUT, after opening nationwide at drive-ins and indoor theaters this fall, will be available on Digital and VOD on December 22, 2020, from Gravitas Ventures.
SHORTCUT follows a group of five classmates trapped inside their school bus after a mysterious creature invades the road. Every passing minute decreases their survival chances against the constant threats of that unknown entity.
Directed by Alessio Liguori (In The Trap, Report 51) and written by Daniele Cosci (The Hour of Darkness, In The Trap), SHORTCUT stars Jack Kane (Dragonheart: Vengeance, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw), Zak Sutcliffe (Peter and Wendy, The Brothers Grimsby), Andrei Claude (“Vikings”, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi), Sophie Jane Oliver (“The Dog Ate My Homework”, and Terence Anderson (The King’s Man, Gangs of Tooting Broadway).
The film is produced by Simona Ferri (Come Back, Darkly), Marco Tempera (Un Mondo in Più, I Liviatani), and Roberto Cipullo (You Can’t Kiss The Bride, Goodbye Bafana).
