Thriller starring Thomas Mann, Nicola Peltz and Percy Hynes White set for release late summer of 2018
XYZ to handle international sales in Berlin with Elevation handling Canadian distribution and Wild Bunch handling Germany
It was announced today that IFC MIDNIGHT is acquiring the U.S. distribution rights for the supernatural suspense thriller OUR HOUSE, starring Thomas Mann, Nicola Peltz and Percy Hynes White, and directed by Anthony Scott Burns in his feature film debut. OUR HOUSE was written by MOON scribe Nathan Parker and was produced by Propero Pictures, Resolute Films, Senator Film Produktion and XYZ Films. Producers include Lee Kim, Martin Katz, Ulf Israel and Karen Wookey, and executive producers are John Davis of Davis Entertainment, Nick Spicer of XYZ Films, and Kyle Franke, Derek Dauchy, Noah Segal, Adrian Love, David Kehrl and Reik Moller. XYZ is selling international rights and will be screening the film in Berlin. Elevation has taken the film for Canadian distribution, and Wild Bunch will be handling Germany.
The U.S. deal was brokered by Nate Bolotin from XYZ Films on behalf of the filmmakers, and by Arianna Bocco for IFC.
In the film, a young genius accidentally invents a device that amplifies the paranormal activity within his family’s house, possibly bringing back the spirits of loved ones, and unleashing things far worse.
XYZ just debuted the critically-acclaimed thriller MANDY starring Nicholas Cage, Andrea Riseborough and Linus Roache, directed by Panos Cosmatos, at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. I DON’T FEEL HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE won the Grand Jury Prize at last year’s Sundance, and the company also had six films accepted at TIFF 2017, including I KILL GIANTS starring Zoe Saldana and BRAWL IN CELL BLOCK 99 starring Vince Vaughn.
