In addition to acquiring The Lodge out of Sundance, Neon has partnered with Hulu to snag distribution rights for the zombie horror comedy Little Monsters following its World Premiere in Park City, Deadline reports.
Little Monsters is expected to receive a theatrical release from Neon before making its way to Hulu.
In the film described as "Zombieland meets Kindergarten Cop," "After a rough breakup, directionless Dave (Alexander England) crashes at his sister’s place and spends his days expanding his young nephew’s questionable vocabulary. When an opportunity arises to chaperone an upcoming school excursion alongside the charming and enigmatic teacher, Miss Caroline (Lupita Nyong’o), Dave jumps at the chance to impress her. What he wasn’t anticipating was Teddy McGiggle (Josh Gad), an obnoxious children’s television personality who shapes the excursion’s activities. What he was expecting even less was a zombie invasion, which unfolds after an experiment at a nearby military base goes awry. Armed only with the resourcefulness of kindergartners, Dave, Miss Caroline, and Teddy must work together to keep the monsters at bay and carve a way out with their guts intact."
Written and directed by Abe Forsythe, Little Monsters stars Alexander England, Lupita Nyong’o, and Josh Gad.
