Sara Paxton has plenty of reason to be thrilled about her latest project…
Drafthouse Films and Snoot Entertainment have acquired the U.S. distribution rights to Cheap Thrills, the twisted dark comedy thriller starring the 24-year-old half-Mexican-American actress.
Cheap Thrills, which has its world premiere at the SXSW Film Conference and Festival, stars Pat Healy as a recently fired father facing eviction who agrees to take on an escalating series of insane challenges in exchange for cash payments from a rich couple with a twisted sense of humor.
In addition to Paxton and Healy, the film stars David Koechner and Ethan Embry.
The directorial debut from E.L. Katz was written by Trent Haaga and David Chirchirillo.
A video on demand and theatrical release in a minimum of 20 markets is planned for the film.
