Every Breath You Take: Casey Affleck thriller set for April release

Last Updated on August 5, 2021

Vertical Entertainment has picked up the North American distribution rights to director Vaughn Stein's psychological thriller Every Breath You Take, with the plan being to give the film a U.S. theatrical and Premium VOD release on April 2nd.

Scripted by Gabrielle Jerou, Richard Barton Lewis, and David Murray, Every Breath You Take stars Casey Affleck, Sam Claflin, Michelle Monaghan, and India Eisley in the story of 

a psychiatrist (Affleck) whose career is thrown into jeopardy when his patient takes her own life. When he invites his patient’s surviving brother (Claflin) into his home to meet his wife (Monaghan) and daughter (Eisley), his family life is suddenly torn apart.

Lewis produced the film through his company Southpaw Entertainment, along with Morgan Emmery, Jean-Charles Levy, and Julian Gross of Trinity Media Financing and Veronica Ferres of Construction Films. Ferres also has an acting role in the film.

Vertical's Peter Jarowey had this to say about the acquisition: 

With its genuinely gripping plot that unfolds masterfully as each twist is revealed, the team at Vertical Entertainment knew that Every Breath You Take was something special. Featuring masterclass performances from the likes of Casey Affleck, Michelle Monaghan and Sam Claflin at its center, the film is a pinnacle psychological thriller, and we are thrilled to offer it to Americans who still crave the elevated cinematic experience from home."

I can't say I was a fan of Stein's previous films Terminal and Inheritance, but I'm still willing to give Every Breath You Take a chance because the story sounds interesting and it has a good cast.
