Lionsgate has just acquired J.T. Petty’s horror comedy Hellbender 3D for North America and select foreign territories. They plan on doing a theatrical run for the film but the date has yet to be announced. Hellbenders stars Clancy Brown, Clifton Collins Jr., Andre Royo, Robyn Rikoon, Macon Blair and Dan Folger. The film was shot in digital 3D.
It follows the exploits of the Brooklyn-based Augustine Interfaith Order of Hellbound Saints — known as Hellbenders, a team of lewd and blasphemous ministers who live in a constant state of debauchery in order to be ready so they can drag the worst of demons back to Hell. Their faith of the Hellbenders is tested when one of the foulest demons possess one of their own and threatens the existence of both Brooklyn and the world.
