Austin, TX native Emily Hagins won a lot of attention when
she made the zombie feature PATHOGEN at age 12, and now she’s scoring another
landmark as one of the youngest filmmakers ever to get a movie theatrically
released, as her third film, the vampire comedy MY SUCKY TEEN ROMANCE, has been
picked up for North American distribution.
MPI Media Group has announced
that it has acquired ROMANCE from the now 18-year-old Hagins, with plans for
theatrical release next spring followed by DVD/VOD availability. The movie
stars Devin Bonnée, Tina Rodriguez, Lauren Lee, Elaine Hurt and Patrick Delgado
and focuses on a group of young friends who encounter real bloodsuckers at a
genre convention. “The buzz over MY SUCKY TEEN ROMANCE started at the SXSW
festival,” says MPI’s Greg Newman, “and we feel fortunate to be a part of what
is a breakthrough for Emily Hagins. We look forward to introducing Emily and
her wonderful film to the North American audience. She has remarkable
filmmaking instincts and vision, and we anticipate great things from her in the
years to come.” Hagins’ struggles to make PATHOGEN were documented in ZOMBIE GIRL:
