Willow Creek Scores Distribution Deal

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on November 20th, 2013


Great news! Bobcat Goldthwait’s Bigfoot thriller Willow Creek has scored a distribution deal and will have a spring 2014 theatrical release!

After seeing the film on June 9th as part of the 2013 Oak Cliff Film Festival, I told Bobcat that Willow Creek was the “Best f@#king Bigfoot movie ever, and Bigfoot wasn’t even shown!”

From news reports:

Comedian-turned-filmmaker Bobcat Goldthwait has inked a deal with MPI for all U.S. rights to his latest pic, thriller Willow Creek. The pact adds the Bigfoot chiller to MPI’s Dark Sky line-up. Following recent Goldthwait films World’s Greatest Dad and God Bless America, Willow Creek puts a faux-docu spin on the Bigfoot mythos as seen through the eyes of an aspiring documentarian (Bryce Johnson) and his skeptical actress girlfriend (Alexie Gilmore) as they take a tour of Northern California’s Trinity National Forest in search of Sasquatch. Goldthwait wrote and directed the pic, which will get a Spring theatrical release in Q2 2014. MPI’s Greg Newman negotiated the deal with Preferred Content’s Zac Bright and Kevin Iwashina and Cassian Elwes. Kaleidescope is repping foreign sales at AFM.

MPI Media Group has set a second quarter 2014 release on the story of aspiring documentary film-makers who try to capture a mythical beast on film.
