The director of MAY and THE WOMAN has a new antihero on the way.

RLJE Films has announced its acquisition of OLD MAN, which will be released in theaters and on VOD/digital platforms October 14. Lucky McKee directed from a screenplay by first-timer Joel Veach, and the movie stars Stephen Lang (DON’T BREATHE), Marc Senter (STARRY EYES, THE LOST)–who also produced with Aaron B. Koontz, Cameron Burns and Ashleigh Snead–Liana Wright-Mark and Patch Darragh. The synopsis: “In OLD MAN, when a lost hiker stumbles upon an erratic old man living in the woods, he could never have imagined the nightmare that awaits.”

“We’re excited to work with Lucky McKee, Stephen Lang and the film’s producing team on another project that is certain to thrill audiences,” says RLJE’s chief acquisitions officer Mark Ward. “The incredibly talented team behind this film has entertained genre-film enthusiasts over the years and OLD MAN is no exception.”
