Drafthouse Films Acquires I Declare War
by Travis Leamons on January 30, 2013

Deadline is reporting that Drafthouse Films has made a deal for I Declare War, the Canadian release revolving around a group of twelve year old kids playing war in the forest, only the audience views the action as if it were real, not imaginary. So wooden sticks are machine guns and pine cones are grenades (that sort of thing). With overtones of William Golding’s Lord of the Flies, I Declare War may feature kids but its subject matter overflows into the adult arena with the news we see reported on a daily basis, especially regarding the debate on violence in the media and gun control.

Regarding the acquisition, Drafthouse Films CEO/Founder Tim League remarked, “Not since Stand By Me have we experienced such a poignant and sincere film about kids for adults.” League would go on to say, “Armed with an arsenal of extremely talented child actors and combining shades of Full Metal Jacket and Lord Of The Flies, [directors] Jason (Lapeyre) and Robert (Wilson) have created a one-of-a-kind action film that we couldn’t be more excited to handle in the US.”

I Declare War was awarded the Audience Award at Austin’s eighth annual Fantastic Fest (2012). A VOD and theatrical release is planned for the fall 2013.
