After showing off its wares to unsuspecting moviegoers at SXSW’s Midnighter line-up, Austin Chick’s revenge thriller “Girls Against Boys” has landed a distributor: Anchor Bay Films has acquired the title, which made its debut at SXSW this week, for North American consumption.
The gritty revenge thriller stars Danielle Panabaker and Nicole LaLiberte as bartenders who decide they’ve had enough of the men in their lives being douche bags to them, and decide to get even. Brutally, sexily, and violently even. Liam Aiken, Michael Stahl-David and Andrew Howard play the hapless victims — er, I mean, men in the film.
Chick’s previous credits include “XX/XY” and “August” with Josh Harnett.
If you missed “Girls Against Boys’” last two Midnighter screenings at SXSW, don’t fret, there are two more to go. One set for tonight, and the final one for tomorrow night. Miss those, and you’ll have to wait until Anchor Bay sets a release date, and who knows when that’ll be.
