New UK distributor ILY Films has acquired Louise Linton comedy-thriller Me You Madness for UK, France and French-speaking Europe.

The project marks the first film written and directed by actress Linton (The Midnight Man). Co-starring is former Gossip Girl actor Ed Westwick.

ILY picked the film up from Highland Film Group. STX previously boarded U.S. rights. The UK digital release is set for April 19, 2021, with the France launch coming in June.

Me You Madness charts the story of a handsome young con man who falls for a glamorous woman who lives in a beautiful Malibu mansion. What he doesn’t realize is that she is also a serial killer who hunts down and kills men with crossbows, chainsaws, and kitchen knives.
