THE VOICES is a genre-bending film which centers around Jerry, a lovable but disturbed factory worker who yearns for the attention of a woman in accounting. When their relationship takes a sudden turn, we follow Jerry’s perspective as his talking pets, a sinister cat and benevolent dog, lead him down a fantastical, murderous path.
“I am very excited and happy that Lionsgate is distributing my film. I know my baby is in great hands,” said Satrapi.
Producers Rhodes and Shankar added, “We are really pleased to have made what’s been called the ultimate WTF horror comedy at Sundance. With their impressive ability to champion such bold, genre bending pictures, we know Lionsgate is the perfect home for this film.”
Satrapi previously directed PERSEPOLIS based on her best-selling graphic novel, which was nominated for an Academy Award® and won the Jury Prize in Cannes. Her film CHICKEN WITH PLUMS premiered at the Venice Film Festival. THE VOICES is her first English language film.
