Hammer’s ‘Resident’ Finds A Home At Image

While Hammer’s first “new” film in decades (Overture’s Let Me In) didn’t make much of a splash at the box office, a bit of star power (and an original story) should help The Resident fare much better. Image Entertainment seems to think so, since they just picked up the film for US distribution, according to Variety. The movie stars Oscar winner Hilary Swank (trying horror again after The Reaping, Hammer legend Christopher Lee, and the ever awesome Comedian himself, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and concerns a woman (Swank, I assume, though Morgan could pull it off) who moves into a new place and begins to suspect someone else is already living there. So it’s Hider In The House, but with less Busey? I’ll bite. Using terrible grammar and made up words, Variety says the film will hit theaters in the spring.
