Lionsgate has acquired JT Petty's horror comedy for North America and select foreign territories. Lionsgate plans a North American theatrical release for the movie with the release date to be announced shortly. "Hellbenders" stars Clancy Brown, Clifton Collins Jr., Andre Royo, Robyn Rikoon, Macon Blair and Dan Folger. The film was produced by Jon Denny, Lawrence Mattis, David Moscow, Mark Pederson and Aldey Sanchez. Circle of Confusion and OffHollywood Pictures produced the film in association with Ambush Entertainment. "Hellbenders" was shot in digital 3D.

The movie, which premiered at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, follows the exploits of the Brooklyn-based Augustine Interfaith Order of Hellbound Saints, known as Hellbenders, a team of lewd and blasphemous ministers who live in a constant state of debauchery in order to be damnation-ready so they can drag the worst of demons back to Hell. When one of the foulest demons possess one of their own and threatens the existence of both Brooklyn and the world, the Hellbenders' faith is tested.

The Exchange is representing international rights and is selling the film at AFM 2012.
