Entertainment One has picked up the US rights to We Are What We Are, the horror/thriller from co-writer and director Jim Mickle, following its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. eOne’s expecting to release the film later this year.
 
“We’re so very excited to add We Are What We Are to our US slate,” stated Dylan Wiley, VP Theatrical Marketing and Distribution, eOne Films North America. “Jim Mickle’s talent was obvious in Mulberry Street and Stake Land, but this film fulfills his vision on a whole new level and will put him in his rightful place among the masters of genre filmmaking. It will be our pleasure to introduce him to an even wider fan base and we’re confident that audiences will eat up the film.”
 
“On behalf of the incredible cast and crew of We Are What We Are, I’m extremely pleased to team up with eOne on a theatrical release and beyond. The response at Sundance has been amazing and we look forward to continuing the journey with our new partners in crime,” said Jim Mickle.
 
The Plot:
 
A seemingly wholesome and benevolent family, the Parkers have always kept to themselves, and for good reason. Behind closed doors, patriarch Frank (Bill Sage) rules his family with a rigorous ferver, determined to keep his ancestral customs intact at any cost. As a torrential rainstorm moves into the area, tragedy strikes and his daughters Iris (Ambyr Childers) and Rose (Julia Garner) are forced to assume responsibilities that extend beyond those of a typical family.
 
The film also stars Michael Parks, Kelly McGillis, Nick Damici, Wyatt Russell and newcomer Jack Gore.
