The splattery Tribeca Film Festival entry has been picked up.
Variety reports Music Box Films have acquired the U.S. rights to the film about an artist and the sleepwalking people-eater he's forced to share a home with, and subsequently, inspired by.
Here's some of what our own Michael Gingold had to say about the film: "Writer/director Boris Rodriguez has some pungent points to make about the creative process, and what an artist must be willing to trade for personal fulfillment and financial success. EDDIE is a kind of Frankenstein story (and indeed, there are echoes of Boris Karloff’s classic turn in Smith’s performance), though here Lars hasn’t created a monster, he just enables him a little bit. Rodriguez’s skillful handling of tone ensures that the satire stops short of making statements at the expense of the fun, while also keeping the more blatant comic elements from tipping the movie over into outright silliness. The characters’ most extreme actions remain motivated by identifiable desires, and when the going gets gory (makeup FX by Liz Ciesluk and Dawn Grant), even when it’s over-the-top enough to get laughs, it isn’t so gross that it turns you against the perpetrator."
