Anchor Bay Entertainment has acquired the U.S. distribution rights to Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer, a horror comedy directed by first-timer Jon Knautz. The film, starring Freddy Krueger himself, Robert Englund, "tells the story of a teen (Trevor Matthews) who is haunted by the murder of his parents. As his rage builds, he accidentally awakens an ancient evil, prompting chaos in the vein of '80s horror-comedy creature features."
Matthews also produced the film with Patrick White through their Brookstreet Pictures, along with Neil Bregman of Sound Venture Productions. No word on a release date yet, though apparently they did make a "theatrical commitment."
