Anchor Bay Buys Into Christina Ricci's After.Life
The bad news is Christina Ricci is dead (or, at least her character is). The good news is she may not actually be dead! The bad news is if she's not, then Liam Neeson may be about to bury her alive (again, just a movie). The good news is you'll finally have a chance to see in in theaters.
Anchor Bay Entertainment, who most recently released horror thriller Pandorum and suspense thriller Law Abiding Citizen, has acquired the rights to release After.Life in the US and in Britain. According to THR the movie will hit theaters in the spring (likely sometime mid-April).
After.Life, which distinguishes itself from other similar films with that trendy period in place of the space, stars Liam Neeson as a funeral director in the awkward position of having a nearly-dead person in his parlor. Christian Ricci plays the not-quite-alive but not-quite-dead young lady who must sort herself out before Neeson puts her into a premature grave. The movie debuted at last year's AFI festival.
The film also stars Justin Long and Josh Charles and was directed/co-written by Agnieszka Wojtowicz-Vosloo. After.Life marks her debut feature film both as writer and director. And she landed Liam Neeson and Christina Ricci? You might not be able to pronounce her name, but you may be seeing more of it in the not too distant future.
