AFM 2013: Image Entertainment Visits WOLF CREEK 2
Fans of Aussie horror flick Wolf Creek will be pleased to know that the rights to the sequel, Wolf Creek 2, have been acquired by Image Entertainment this weekend at AFM.
The company has scheduled the film for 2014. The only question is whether the film will have any sort of theatrical run or home video release. VOD is pretty much a no-brainer in this day and age. The article is not clear 'where' they have the rights but Image Entertainment distributes in the U.S. and U.K. An Australian theatrical release is forthcoming on February 20, 2014 from Roadshow Film Distributors.
