Now this is exciting!
The divine new film starring Rebecca Hall (shoutout to “Iron Man 3”!), David Bruckner’s psychological thriller “The Night House”, has been picked up by Searchlight Pictures.
The film, which bowed in Park City, is penned by Ben Collins & Luke Piotrowski and fixes on a widow (Hall) who begins to uncover her recently deceased husband’s disturbing secrets.
David Goyer, of “Batman Begins” and “Blade” fame, produced and developed the script. Others on the producing committee of note include Keith Levine (“47 Meters Down”) and John Zois (“Hotel Artemis”).
“The Night House instantly drew us in,” said Searchlight Pictures Chairmen Nancy Utley and Steve Gilula. “David Bruckner’s masterful direction creates an unrelenting suspense thriller anchored by an astonishing performance by Rebecca Hall.”
“Searchlight is a beacon of quality and inspired curation. To be working with them on THE NIGHT HOUSE is nothing short of a dream come true,” said Bruckner.
“This is the perfect home for this film. Searchlight’s exemplary taste and their global campaigns are masterful,” added Anton’s founder Sébastien Raybaud.
“For a challenging, layered and lingering film like The Night House, we couldn’t be in better hands,” said Phantom Four’s Keith Levine. “We are thrilled to bring the film into the Searchlight family.”
While we’re told to be expect a release this year, no date has been announced yet.
