A Boy and His Demon Colon: Magnet Releasing Buys ‘Milo’

A Boy and His Demon Colon: Magnet Releasing Buys 'Milo'

Magnet Releasing has acquired North American distribution rights to horror comedy “Milo,” which premiered at the just-wrapped SXSW Film Festival.

Directed by Jacob Vaughan, written by Vaughn and Benjamin Hayes, and starring Ken Marino and Gillian Jacobs, “Milo” is the story of Duncan (Ken Marino), who has a manipulative and crooked boss (Patrick Warburton), a nagging mother (Mary Kay Place), a deadbeat new-age dad (Stephen Root) — but his real problem is the pint-sized demon living in his intestine.

MILO was produced by Adele Romanski with New Artists Alliance’s Gabriel Cowan and John Suits.  Executive producers include Mark & Jay Duplass, John Norris, Kerry Johnson, Dallas Sonnier, Jack Heller and Floren Shieh Productions’ Clay Floren and Aimee Shieh.

The deal was negotiated by Magnolia/Magnet SVP of Acquisitions Dori Begley and Director of Acquisitions Peter van Steemburg, with ICM Partners on behalf of the filmmakers and producers.
