Cannes 2017: US Rights to Horror Comedy Tragedy Girls Expected to Go Quickly

The horror comedy feature Tragedy Girls premiered at this year’s South by Southwest film fest, and now it’s heading to Cannes, where The Exchange CEO Brian O’Shea and his team will be screening it at the Market for international territories.

Per Screen Daily, CAA is handling the U.S. rights, and a deal is expected to be announced shortly.

Tyler MacIntyre directed from a screenplay he co-wrote with Chris Lee Hill. Producers are Anthony Holt, Armen Aghaeian, Edward Mokhtarian, Cameron Van Hoy, Tara Ansley, and Craig Robinson. Kerry Rhodes serves as an executive producer. The Comeback Kids and New Artist Pictures produced Tragedy Girls in association with Ardor Pictures.

Brianna Hildebrand, Alexandra Shipp, Jack Quaid, Kevin Durand, and Craig Robinson lead the cast in the story of two death-obsessed teenage girls in a small Midwestern town.

“Tragedy Girls is a fun, commercial, and incredibly satisfying teen genre movie, which will have a great run in the international market,” said O’Shea.

Sadie and McKayla are two social-media obsessed best friends who will stop at nothing to build their online following. The self-titled “Tragedy Girls” kidnap Lowell, an unambitious local serial killer, and force him to mentor them into modern horror legends by committing murders to blow up on the internet.

As the bodies fall, the girls become national news; and panic in their small town hits a fever pitch — just then, Lowell escapes! Now, with the local sheriff closing in and their relationship on the rocks, the girls must rethink their plan before they find themselves the latest victims of their own killing spree.
