Dimension Films Gets Angry Little God
The psychological thriller Angry Little God has found a home with Dimension Films. Dimension just announced they’ve snatched up the US distribution rights to the film which is an English-language remake of the Thai thriller 13: Game of Death. Daniel Stamm (The Last Exorcism) is directing and Jason Blum (Sinister, Insidious) is executive producing.
“I was blown away by Daniel Stamm’s direction in The Last Exorcism and have wanted to work with him ever since,” said Bob Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Company. “We look forward to bringing his suspenseful Angry Little God to American audiences.”
“Stamm and his writing partner David Birke adapted the script from the original film which follows a bright but meek social services coordinator who’s drowning in debt and desperate as he’s about to marry the love of his life. He receives a mysterious phone call informing him that he’s on a hidden camera game show where he must execute 13 tasks to receive a cash prize of over $6,000,000. He accepts the challenge, but even with thousands of dollars suddenly appearing in his bank account, he realizes he’s in over his head. Trapped into the horrors manipulated by unseen spectators, his need to complete the game escalates as the tasks grow more extreme, to a devastating point of no return.”
