Bleecker Street has acquired the U.S. distribution rights to Sasquatch Sunset, the upcoming feature film from filmmakers David and Nathan Zellner (The Treasure Hunter), Deadline reports.

Riley Keough, Jesse Eisenberg, Nathan Zellner and Christophe Zajac-Denek star in the film. An air of mystery shrouds the film, and plot details remain scarce – other than it’s described as “a year in the life of a singular family”. Oh, and Eisenberg is playing a Sasquatch. You know, the big, hairy cryptid? Yep.

As the Vivarium and Zombieland actor teased in a recent interview with Variety, “I play a Sasquatch: full makeup, full body hair, no lines. I grunt, but no lines. I’m so looking forward to this.”

The Zellner Brothers have previously helmed the Sundance award-winning short film Sasquatch Birth Journal 2 in 2010, so Sasquatch Sunset feels like a project years in the making. Plus, we know this feature is executive produced by Beau is Afraid director and modern horror auteur Ari Aster, which is yet more reason to be excited for this project.

Bleecker Street will release Sasquatch Sunset to cinemas in 2024. Stay tuned for additional details on the project as we hear it!
