Finally John Carpenter’s latest film, The Ward has Benn picked up for U.S. distribution, according to Deadline London, ARC Entertainment and XLrator Media Partnership will be handling distribution duties in the U.S.
While this is great news that The Ward has been finally picked up for a U.S. release, there is still no word as to whether the film will get a theatrical release or simple straight to DVD/Blu-ray. I guess we will find out that answer in the coming weeks, hopefully. The Ward is directed by John Carpenter and written by Michael Rasmussen and Shawn Rasmussen, the film stars Amber Heard, Lyndsy Fonseca, Danielle Panabaker, Jared Harris, Mika Boorem, Mamie Gummer and Sydney Sweeney.
Synopsis: “In John Carpenter’s The Ward, Kristen, a beautiful but troubled young woman, finds herself bruised, cut, drugged, and held against her will in a remote ward of a Psychiatric Hospital. She is completely disoriented, with no idea why she was brought to this place and no memory of her life before being admitted. All she knows is that she isn’t safe. The other patients in the ward, four equally disturbed young women, offer no answers, and Kristen quickly realises things are not as they seem.
The air is heavy with secrets, and at night, when the hospital is dark and foreboding, she hears strange and frightening sounds. It appears they are not alone. One-by-one the other girls begin to disappear and Kristen must find a way out of this hellish place before she, too, becomes a victim. As she struggles to escape, she will uncover a truth far more dangerous and horrifying than anyone could have imagined.”
