A little birdy just told me that there’s been a last second addition to the midnight portion of this coming January’s Sundance Film Festival. We’re being told that Chris Kentis and Laura Lau’s The Silent House is already completed and screening! In fact, we’ve already landed a look at 5 hi-res images beyond the break. Kentis and Lau – the duo behind Lionsgate’s Open Water – reteam for this remake that follows a young woman troubled a childhood trauma. Whilst visiting her family’s isolated summer home with her father and uncle, when they learn they are not alone in the house. The terrifying 80 minute period is told from Sarah’s point of view. Elizabeth Olsen, sister to Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, takes the lead role. We also learned of the additional casting of both Eric Sheffer Stevens and Julia Taylor Ross. The original Silent House, which ran in Cannes Directors Fortnight this year, was directed by Gustavo Hernandez and told in 80 minutes of “real time” during one continuous take.
