In a press release today, AMC Networks announced that Shudder and RLJE will be partnering on the upcoming Shudder Original, Destroy All Neighbors.
NEW YORK – May 10, 2022—Shudder, AMC Networks’ streaming service for horror, thriller, and the supernatural, and RLJE Films, a business unit of AMC Networks, today announced their partnership on the newest Shudder Original film, DESTROY ALL NEIGHBORS.
From music-video and commercial director Josh Forbes and starring Jonah Ray Rodrigues and Alex Winter who also produce, DESTROY ALL NEIGHBORS will have a day-and-date release in theaters and on Shudder in 2023. The film, which is also produced by Russell Sanzgiri, is from an original script written by Mike Benner, Jared Logan, and Charles Pieper.
“We’re so excited for Josh, Jonah, and Alex to bring this hilariously dark take on ‘the neighbor from hell’ to our members,’” said Shudder general manager Craig Engler. “Giving this tentpole feature as big of a launchpad as possible with our partners at RLJE Films is sure to get the whole ‘neighborhood’ talking.”
In DESTROY ALL NEIGHBORS, struggling prog-rock musician William Brown (Rodrigues) finds himself in a living nightmare when he accidentally kills Vlad (Winter), the neighbor from hell. Vlad’s disembodied corpse delights in tormenting William, sending him further into madness and impending doom.
“We’re thrilled to be working with Shudder and RLJE on this labor of love,” added Winter. “Our film is a return to the kind of physical effects-driven genre comedy that’s all too rare these days.”
Casting is underway and production is set to commence this July.
