IFC Midnight has acquired the North American distribution rights to Alex de la Iglesia’s “Witching & Bitching”. The film will see a theatrical U.S release in 2014 and simultaneous bow on VOD platforms. The edgy and whimsical narrative is a lighthearted battle of the sexes. “Witching & Bitching” stars Javier Botet, Mario Casas, Santiago Segura, Hugo Silva and Carolina Bang.
Mario Casas and Hugo Silva as two ne’er-do-wells who pull a Madrid heist, then flee towards France, only to fall into the maws of local witches at Navarre’s Zugarramurdi, its millennium-old coven center of occult activities.
