The news of the acquisition comes ahead of next month’s virtual Cannes pre-screenings with Los Angeles-based Myriad Pictures picking up international rights for the film excluding Ireland and the UK.

The comedy is the feature debut from writer/director Rachel Carey, which debuted at the Dublin International Film Festival in March, and saw Carey pick up a Discovery Award.

“We are pleased to be working with the producers on this original and comedic film firmly set in Ireland,”Myriad Pictures president and CEO Kirk D’Amico told Screen Daily. “Rachel Carey, the writer and director, has created a very believable world of hair salons and stylists confronted with an existential problem. The performances are terrific. The final cut of this film will leave you smiling.”

Starring Angeline Ball (The Commitments, Shameless), Ericka Roe (Herself, Dublin Murders), Lauren Larkin (Love/Hate), Shauna Higgins (Dating Amber, Red Rock), and Victoria Smurfit (Once Upon A Time, Marcella), Deadly Cuts follows the stylists of a Dublin hair salon who become accidental vigilantes as they take on a local gang threatening their community.

“I made this film because I’d felt for a long time that a Dublin comedy was well overdue - especially one that featured the style, wit, and occasional murderous urges of the Dublin young one - and I can’t wait for audiences to watch it fly,” previously told IFTN.

Wildcard Distribution will handle the Irish release of the film, which patiently waits for cinema screens to reopen this summer.

Patrick O’Neill, Wildcard Managing Director, previously extended his delight about bring this project to the screen this Summer. “It is incredibly exciting for everyone at Wildcard to be working on Rachel Carey’s hilarious debut feature Deadly Cuts,” O’Neill said. “This is one of the funniest Irish films I have seen in recent years with incredible comedic performances from the cast, and we can’t wait for a cinema audience to experience the adventures of this Dublin cutting crew in summer 2021!”

Deadly Cuts was produced by Auveen Lush, Ciara Appelbe and Liz Gill for O’Sullivan Productions with funding from Fís Éireann / Screen Ireland, the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) and Virgin Media.
