Mark Meir‘s Faustian morality tale The Summoned has been acquired by XYZ Films for North America out of the 2022 Overlook Film Festival, Bloody Disgusting learned. A July release is planned.

In the film, young Elijah (J. Quinton Johnson) attends a self-help retreat with his rockstar girlfriend Lyn, unaware that the enigmatic doctor who runs the estate has summoned him here to settle a generations-old supernatural debt.

Directed by Meir with a script by Jewish-Ukrainian writer Yuri Baranovsky, the cast includes Emma Fitzpatrick (The Social Network), Salvador Chacon (FX’s “Mayans M.C.”), Angela Gulner (Netflix’s “Glow”), and Freddy Douglas.

A Wicked Myth and Happy Little Guillotine Studios co-production, the picture is Produced by Baranovsky, Meir, Gulner, Justin Mark Morrison, and Dashiell Reinhardt.
