Stage Fright, the previously reported horror comedy musical described as a mash-up between Scream and Glee and featuring Minnie Driver and Meat Loaf, has secured U.S distribution. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Magnet Releasing has picked up the rights and will release the film to iTunes and On Demand on April 3, followed by a theatrical release on May 9.
Written and directed by Jerome Sable, Stage Fright also stars Allie MacDonald and Douglas Smith. The movie tells the story of a musical theater camp terrorized by a cold-blooded masked killer who absolutely hates theater. Driver plays Kylie Swanson, a haunted and mysterious stage star who is also the mother of campers Camilla (MacDonald) and Buddy (Smith). Meat Loaf plays Roger McCall, a washed-up Broadway producer turned camp director.
The film is set to debut at the South by Southwest Festival in Austin next month.
