Well Go USA Entertainment has acquired the U.S. rights to Canadian thriller Broil.
A digital and home entertainment release is scheduled for Oct. 13.
Directed and co-written by Edward Drake (Breach, Cosmic Sin), Broil stars Lochlyn Munro (Riverdale), Timothy V. Murphy (National Treasure: Book of Secrets) and Jonathan Lipnicki (Jerry Maguire, Stuart Little).
It’s a seemingly classic coming-of-age story that is quickly complicated by the fact that the protagonist’s family has been hiding a dark secret for millennia. After a violent incident with an insufferable school nemesis, 17-year-old Chance Sinclair (Avery Konrad) is sent to live with her reclusive grandfather (Murphy) in his lavish mountain estate. She seeks to uncover the true origin of her eccentric grandfather’s exorbitant wealth — and a mysterious familial health condition going back generations. Quickly caught between two warring factions of the family, Chance’s only hope for survival may well come from a killer-for-hire (Lipnicki) with a fortuitous stroke of culinary genius.
“Well Go USA is home to some of my favorite films and I’m so grateful for the hard work of the team,” said Drake in a statement. “Broil was created by a fantastic Vancouver and Victoria cast and crew. We took cues from Rosemary’s Baby, The Witch, Get Out, Succession, Barry Lyndon, You’re Next, and many more to bring Broil to life, a story which is absolutely 100% based on true events.”
