Dennis Quaid thriller The Intruder set for April release

Fortitude Dennis Quaid

At the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, Sony's Screen Gems spent an amount somewhere in the mid-seven-figures to acquire the worldwide distribution rights to director Deon Taylor's psychological thriller THE INTRUDER. Now the company has scheduled the film for an April 26, 2019 theatrical release.

Written by David Loughery, the film stars Meagan Good and Michael Ealy as 

a young married couple who buys a beautiful Napa Valley home only to find that the man they bought it from refuses to let go of the property, and he slowly terrorizes them. 

Dennis Quaid (pictured above in the Amazon series Fortitude) plays the seller, and it has been said that the character's descent into madness is similar to Jack Nicholson's in THE SHINING.

Joseph Sikora is also in the cast.

THE INTRUDER was produced by Taylor, Roxanne Avent, Mark Burg, Brad Kaplan, Jonathan Schwartz, and Robert F. Smith's company Hidden Empire Film Group.

This project sounds interesting, but I'm not a fan of the generic title. I keep saying, there are already too many movies with the title "INTRUDER", but they keep announcing more of them. The film was shot under the title MOTIVATED SELLER, and I can understand why they didn't stick with that one.
