One Michael Keaton’s best roles was as the psychotic tenant “Carter Hayes” in the 1990 theiller Pacific Heights. While not horror, it’s something we’d definitely cover here on Bloody, which is why we’re giving Dimension Films’ latest a look.
Dimension announced that it has acquired U.S. distribution rights to the film Penthouse North from director Joseph Ruben (Sleeping with the Enemy, The Forgotten, Return to Paradise). The thriller stars Michael Keaton (Pacific Heights, Beetlejuice, Batman) and Michelle Monaghan (Source Code, Machine Gun Preacher).
“Sara Taylor (Monaghan), a photojournalist blinded in Iraq, is forced to play a deadly game of cat and mouse with the sadistic criminal Hollander (Keaton) – a man who will stop at nothing to get a fortune of stolen diamonds hidden in Sara’s penthouse apartment. Although Sara claims to not know where the diamonds are, Hollander utilizes psychological and physical torture in an effort to break Sara’s resistance. But Sara fights back. As the suspense builds to a shattering climax, Sara gains the advantage. But will it be enough to save her?”
The film begins production in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada on December 7th.
