Cured: Zombie Movie, Starring Ellen Page

IFC Films has acquired North American distribution rights to The Cured.

Starring Ellen age, the zombie movie debuted at the Toronto Film Fest to strong reviews.

The deal was in the seven-figure range, and the movie will receive a robust theatrical release in the spring of 2018.

“The Cured” was directed by first-time director David Freyne.

The film is set in a future where zombies try to reintegrate with society after a plague infects mankind. Sam Keeley co-stars in the project, which was produced by Rachael O’Kane, Rory Dungan and Page.

It’s been a slow Toronto as many high-profile titles, such as “Lady Bird,” “The Shape of Water” and “Downsizing,” came to Canada with distribution in tow.
