Freestyle Releasing announced today that they have acquired all rights and are set to distribute in theaters nationwide the star-studded animated comedy Hell & Back from directors Tom Gianas and Ross Shuman. Lending their voices to the adult comedy romp about a best friend misadventure into the underworld are Nick Swardson, Mila Kunis, Danny McBride, Susan Sarandon, Bob Odenkirk, T.J. Miller, and David Koechner. The film was written by Tom Gianas, Hugh Sterbakov, and Zeb Wells and produced by Alexander Bulkley, Corey Campodonico, and Eric Blyler. The wide theatrical release is slated for Sept 25th, 2015.
Remy, Augie and Curt have been best friends since birth. When they jokingly take a blood oath and break it, Curt is dragged to Hell to be sacrificed. The guys must risk everything to save their friend from a slew of misfit demons, Greek legends, and the Devil himself. Are they prepared? No, absolutely not. The deal was negotiated by Chris Charalambous for Freestyle Releasing and by CAA and attorney Tom Hunter on behalf of the filmmakers. Said Mark Borde, President of Freestyle Releasing:
Hell & Back is just the right amount of wrong! The comedy is truly outrageous and the star-packed performances are hilarious."
"We had a lot of fun making an insane film with some of the funniest comedic talent out there. It's completely inappropriate and we're excited to bring it to theaters everywhere!"
