Magnet Releasing, the genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, has acquired North American rights to sci-fi horror film ‘John Dies at the End’, directed, produced and written by Don Coscarelli (Bubba Ho-Tep) and starring Paul Giamatti who also executive produced alongside Daniel Carey, Chase Williamson, Angus Scrimm, Rob Mayes, Clancy Brown, Glynn Turman and Doug Jones.
It’s a drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. On the street they call it Soy Sauce, and users drift across time and dimensions. But some who come back are no longer human. Suddenly a silent otherworldly invasion is underway, and mankind needs a hero. What it gets instead is John and David, a pair of college dropouts who can barely hold down jobs. Can these two stop the oncoming horror in time to save humanity? No. No, they can’t.
