Shudder and Samuel Goldwyn Films recently acquired Adam Egypt Mortimer‘s (Some Kind of Hate, Holidays) Daniel Isn’t Real, and we’ve learned the Patrick Schwarzenegger-starring film will hit limited theaters and VOD platforms on December 6th via Samuel Goldwyn Films. It will then begin streaming on Shudder at a later date.
Now, out of the ongoing San Diego Comic-Con comes the first ever trailer from the film that carries a heavy Jacob’s Ladder vibes and looks to be a total psychological mind fuck!
In the film, co-written by Mortimer and Brian DeLeeuw and based on DeLeeuw’s book In This Way I Was Saved, "troubled college freshman Luke (Miles Robbins) suffers a violent family trauma and resurrects his childhood imaginary friend Daniel (Patrick Schwarzenegger) to help him cope. Charismatic and full of manic energy, Daniel helps Luke to achieve his dreams, before pushing him to the very edge of sanity and into a desperate struggle for control of his mind, and his soul."
Sasha Lane, Hannah Marks and Mary Stuart Masterson also star.
Daniel Noah, Josh C. Waller, Lisa Whalen and Elijah Wood produced the film.
