Back in April we brought you the news that Julia Stiles, Scott Speedman and Stephen Rea were set to star in the supernatural thriller OUT OF THE DARK under Spanish helmer Lluis Quilez, and now THR is reporting that Exclusive Media has just landed the international sales rights for the flick at AFM 2013.
Quilez directed the film from a screenplay by Alex & David Pastor and Javier Gullón which is about...
...an American couple, Sarah and Paul Harriman, who move to Colombia with their young daughter, Hannah, to take over the manufacturing business owned by Sarah’s father, and soon realize that the house they’ve moved into is haunted."
Participant Media backed the film with Image Nation and Colombia’s Dynamo and Spain’s Apaches Entertainment. Participant’s Jeff Skoll and Jonathan King and Nick Spicer of XYZ Films served as executive producers. King is adamant that OUT OF THE DARK will offer something new and terrifying to the genre, stating...
This is not your average ghost story. You can be sure that there’s a bigger reason why this takes place at this particular house in the Colombian jungle and to this particular family.”
I'm always up for a fresh take and some original ideas behind a haunted house flick. Plus having the great Stephen Rea onboard is always a good sign.
More on OUT OF THE DARK as we hear it!
