The latest news in the saga that is the Martyrs remake sees the film landing distribution with Anchor Bay Entertainment.
This only seems to further substantiate the previous reports that the film is already completed in its entirety.
Anchor Bay plans to release the film theatrically (presumably in limited release) and on VOD, DVD, and Blu-ray. No word just yet on when but we will keep you in the loop as we learn more!
The remake is reportedly directed by The Goetz Brothers (Scenic Route). Mark L. Smith (Vacancy) wrote the script. Troian Bellisario and Caitlin Carmichael star. Blumhouse and The Safran Company were reportedly involved with the production.
Martyrs tells the story of Lucie, a young girl who was beaten and tortured by a sadistic family years prior. Lucie and her friend set out to track down the family years later. The pair exacts brutal revenge but things take a turn for the bizarre and they wind up martyrs in the process of seeking retribution.
