RLJE Films has nabbed director Julius Berg’s feature debut The Owners with Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones, The New Mutants) as a young woman who finds herself in the middle of a nightmare when her boyfriend plots to commit a burglary, which spirals out of control.
It’s expected to hit theaters and on VOD and digital HD in the fall of 2020.
RLJE Films chief acquisitions officer Mark Ward said: “Coming off the unprecedented success of Game of Thrones, we’re excited to work with Maisie Williams and the other talented filmmakers and cast members who certainly brought their A-game to produce an amazing thriller.”
Jake Curran, Ian Kenny, Andrew Ellis, Sylvester McCoy, and Rita Tushingham co-star.
To give you a better idea of what’s in store with the flick, it begins when an elderly couple returns home early and the tables are suddenly turned and a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues as the would-be thieves fight to save themselves from a worsening nightmare.
Sounds like People Under the Stairs meets Don’t Breathe to me…
Berg co-wrote the film with Mathieu Gompel and Geoff Cox. Alain de la Mata and Christopher Granier-Deferre produced. Brahim Chioua, Gregory Strouk, Eric Tavitian, Frédéric Fiore and Pape Boye co-produced. Nate Bolotin and Maxime Cottray are executive producers.
