TIFF: Tubi Nabs ‘Amityville Curse’ Novel Adaptation, ‘Marry F*** Kill’ Genre Pics


Fox’s Tubi adds to its horror library after picking up two Canadian genre pics – Dennis Heaton’s adaptation of Hans Holzer The Curse of Amityville novel and Marry F*** Kill by writers Ian Carpenter and Aaron Martin — at the Toronto Film Festival.

Independent production banner Incendo will shoot both productions later this year for Tubi in the US market where it faces increased competition in the free and ad-supported online space from Paramount’s Pluto TV, Amazon’s Freevee and the Roku channel.

The latest gender pic deals for the Fox-owned streaming platform were unveiled at TIFF on Tuesday as part of its informal film market. Marry F*** Kill sees five estranged college friends reunite for their friend’s funeral after her suicide, only to see an innocent game of “Marry, Fuck, Kill” turn into something far more sinister.

Caroline Labreche will lead an ensemble cast led by Jedidiah Goodacre, Maxine Denis, Robbie Graham-Kuntz, Cynthia Jimenez-Hicks, Deanna Jarvis and Devin Cecchetto. Marry F*** Kill is produced by Graham Ludlow and Kaleigh Kavanagh, with Ludlow, Brook Peters and Shari Segal serving as executive producers.

Heaton’s adaptation of The Curse of Amityville, based on the legendary haunting of Amityville, will offer a fresh take on the 1990 direct-to-video film, with Incendo having picked up the underlying rights to the original novel from the estate. Éric Tessier will direct the film adaptation, with Graham Ludlow and Kaleigh Kavanagh producing.

Executive producers include Hans Holzer’s daughter, Alexandra Holzer. No word on the adaptation’s casting.
