THR reports that A24 has acquired the US distribution rights for the horror-comedy Life After Beth.
The film from writer-director Jeff Baena stars Aubrey Plaza, Dane DeHaan, Anna Kendrick, John C. Reilly and Molly Shannon. In the story, a teenager (DeHaan) gets a second chance with his dead girlfriend after she comes back to life as a zombie. The film premiered at the Library Theatre on January 19 for Sundance.
A24 will release the movie theatrically, but a DirecTV component is also part of the deal, allowing the satellite provider to show the film exclusively for 30 days before the theatrical release.
