AGC International has nabbed international rights to Late Night With The Devil from Aussie filmmaking duo Colin and Cameron Cairnes and will launch sales at the upcoming American Film Market.

Unfolding almost in real-time, the pic is set during a 1977 late-night talk show broadcast that unexpectedly transforms from amusing to sinister, unleashing evil into the nation’s living rooms. The film stars David Dastmalchian (The Suicide Squad, Oppenheimer) as talk show host Jack Delroy and is produced by Derek Dauchy, Mat Govoni, Steven Schneider, Roy Lee, Adam White, and John Molloy for Image Nation Abu Dhabi, Spooky Pictures and Future Pictures. Umbrella Maslow Ahi is distributing the film in Australia and New Zealand.

The Image Nation Abu Dhabi and Spooky Pictures pic premiered at SXSW and has since played Fantasia Festival in Montreal, Sydney Film Festival, BIFAN in Korea, Sitges, London Film Festival, and Toronto After Dark. Cameron and Colin won the Best Screenplay prize for the film at Sitges.

Late Night With The Devil is one of the freshest, most innovative lower budget scary movies I and the team have seen in many years, and it’s been exhilarating to watch the film rapidly gather critical and audience momentum at major festivals over the past few months,” said AGC’s Stuart Ford. “We’re confident that distributors around the world are going to gobble this one up after its Halloween market screening.”

Colin and Cameron’s debut feature 100 Bloody Acres won the Midnight X-treme award at Sitges. Their follow-up was Scare Campaign (2016). AGC previously partnered with Image Nation Abu Dhabi and Roy Lee and Steven Schneider’s Spooky Pictures on Chloe Okuno’s Watcher. AGC and Lee also recently partnered on Anna Kendrick’s serial killer thriller Woman of the Hour, which was picked up by Netflix.
