Relativity Moves into The House at the End of the Street
Relativity Media has found a new place to hang its hat, along with the bodies of hapless victims who hopefully pile up at a rapid fire rate in the latest fear fest, The House at the End of the Street.
From the Press Release
Relativity Media announced today that it has closed a deal to acquire US distribution rights to FilmNation Entertainment and A Bigger Boat’s thriller House at the End of the Street, starring Oscar®-nominee Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone), Oscar®-nominee Elisabeth Shue (Leaving Las Vegas) and Max Theriot (My Soul to Take).
Directed by Mark Tonderai (Hush) and written by David Loucka (Dream House), the film is about a mother (Shue) and daughter (Lawrence) who move into a new community and find themselves next door to a house in which a psychotic young girl murdered her parents. While the locals insist the girl vanished after the brutal murders, the young newcomer befriends the surviving son (Theriot) and discovers the sinister story is far from over.
Producers are FilmNation Entertainment’s Aaron Ryder (The Prestige), A Bigger Boat’s Peter Block (Saw franchise), and Hal Lieberman (Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines). FilmNation Entertainment will handle distribution outside of the U.S.
Looking ahead, Relativity will release David Ellis’ Shark Night 3D on September 2nd, 2011. On November 11th, 2011, the studio will release the highly-anticipated Immortals, starring Henry Cavill, Stephen Dorff, Isabel Lucas, Freida Pinto, Luke Evans, Kellan Lutz, with John Hurt and Mickey Rourke.
FilmNation Entertainment is currently in post-production on James McTeigue’s The Raven starring John Cusack.
