Writer/director Jacob Vaughan's new comedy horror 'Milo' has been picked up by Magnet Releasing for distribution across the US. The flick which stars Ken Marino ('Wanderlust') and sexy 'Community' actress Gillian Jacobs (below) was picked up late on Friday marking it as the final deal closed from this years SXSW in Austin. Marino plays the role of Duncan, a highly stressed individual whom begins to unleash a tiny demon from his intestine whenever he gets anxious. Peter Stormare ('Fargo'), Patrick Warburton ('Ted'), Stephen Root ('Office Space') and Mary Kay Place also star in this 'Gremlins'-esque project which now should be given a official release date in the coming weeks.
"Duncan's (Ken Marino) life is a real pain in the ass. Tormented by manipulative, crooked boss (Patrick Warburton), a nagging mother (Mary Kay Place), a deadbeat new age dad (Stephen Root), and a sweet, yet pressuring, wife (Gillian Jacobs), his mounting stress starts to trigger an insufferable gastrointestinal reaction. Out of ideas and at the end of his rope, Duncan seeks the help of a hypnotherapist (Peter Stormare), who helps him discover the root of his unusual stomach pain: a pintsized demon living in his intestine that, triggered by excessive anxiety, forces its way out and slaughters the people who have angered him. Out of fear that his intestinal gremlin may target its wrath on the wrong person, Duncan attempts to befriend it, naming it Milo and indulging it to keep its seemingly insatiable appetite at bay."
