Jim Mickle, the director of Stake Land, debuted We Are What We Are, his remake of Jorge Grau's film, at Sundance and it didn't take long for it to find a home.
According to Deadline, eOne picked up the distribution rights and is planning a theatrical release. It's still, obviously, too early to tell when the film will bow.
Mickle's latest stars Julia Garner, Ambyr Childers and Bill Sage.
One of the films making its premiere during Sundance's Park City at Midnight line-up is We Are What We Are, a remake of Jorge Michael Grau's Mexican film of the same name. Today, ShockTillYouDrop.com has received two new stills from the production. This in addition to the photo we received a few weeks ago (which you see to the right).
Directed by Stake Land's Jim Mickle, the film stars Julia Garner, Ambyr Childers and Bill Sage. In the film, a a seemingly wholesome and benevolent family, the Parkers have always kept to themselves, and for good reason. Behind closed doors, patriarch Frank (Sage) rules his family with a rigorous ferver, determined to keep his ancestral customs intact at any cost. As a torrential rainstorm moves into the area, tragedy strikes and his daughters Iris (Childers) and Rose (Garner) are forced to assume responsibilities that extend beyond those of a typical family.
With the announcement of Sundance's Park City at Midnight line-up comes a series of images from the films selected for that program.

According to Screen Daily, "Keough and Garner will play a pair of sisters who are secluded from mainstream society. Following the untimely death of their mother, their father, played by Sage, forces them to perform a depraved ritual, carried out by their ancestors for generations. Russell will play a young deputy who is in love with Keough’s character."
So, Mickle is putting a bit of a twist on Jorge Michael Grau's original We Are What We Are. Shooting begins at the end of this month.
