Now here's a title you don't hear every day...
...Via Deadline, Epic Pictures Group has acquired U.S. rights for director Tyler Cornack's comedy-thriller, Butt Boy! Yes, you read that right, Butt Boy, which sounds exactly as strange and curious and potentially queasy as the title implies.
In Butt Boy:
"Newly sober detective Russell Fox (Tyler Rice) who meets his sponsor, Chip Gutchel (Tyler Cornack), and whose investigation of a missing child leads him to suspect that the other man may be connected. He begins to realize that Chip’s addiction may not be to alcohol, but to something much more sinister and shocking."
Said Epic Pictures Group CEO Patrick Ewald, “'Butt Boy' embodies the rogue spirit of independent filmmaking and does not fit a conventional mold...it is fresh, inventive, and fearless storytelling and is the kind of visionary film Epic can get behind.”
Discover the mystery of Butt Boy when it releases on April 3rd, 2020, with theatrical screenings expected through Alamo Drafthouse.
