Magnolia Pictures announced today that the company has acquired Tucker and Dale Versus Evil.
And it's about goddamn time, we say.
A film festival hit, the horror-comedy is directed by Eli Craig and starring Alan Tudyk (Serenity), Tyler Labine (Reaper) and Katrina Bowden (30 Rock).
Tucker and Dale are two best friends on vacation at their dilapidated Appalachian mountain cabin, who are mistaken for murderous backwoods hillbillies by a group of obnoxious, preppy college kids. When one of the students gets separated from her friends, the boys try to lend a hand, but as the misunderstanding grows, so does the body count.
Magnet plans to release Tucker and Dale Versus Evil in its Ultra VOD program, debuting the films on all VOD platforms nationwide on August 26th, prior to a theatrical release on September 30th.
