NEON and Hulu have won a bidding among four studios to land rights to release the dark comedy Little Monsters. The suitors battled all night for the Abe Forsythe-directed genre film that stars Lupita Nyong’o, Alexander England and Josh Gad. The deal went for mid-seven figures for the US rights.
The film is being called Zombieland meets Kindergarten Cop, and the dealmaking got hot and heavy while Nyong’o was beaming at the Screen Actors Guild Awards as Black Panther won the top prize. The plan will amount to a hybrid that combines a theatrical release with massive cross promotion on the streaming platform, where the film will land.
Alt.vfx handled all VFX, with our very own Jason Hawkins being overall VFX Supervisor on the film.
