The US rights deal for Guillermo Amoedo’s ‘Chilewood’ genre film Eli Roth Presents The Stranger follows the recent world premiere at Fantastic Fest.

Chilean film-maker Amoedo wrote and directed. He previously collaborated as co-writer on the Chilewood titles Knock Knock, Green Inferno and Aftershock.

Lorenza Izzo, Aaron Burns, Ariel Levy, Nicolás Durán, Cristobal Tapia-Mont and Louis Gniecho star and Miguel Asensio, Nicolás López and Roth produced.

The story, funded by the Chilean government and shot in 2013, follows a mysterious man who arrives in a small Canadian town seeking his wife.

IFC brokered the deal with Cassian Elwes, who served as executive producer on The Stranger.
