Exclusive Media will finance and produce the new thriller Still of Night, written and to be directed by Jonathan Mostow (Terminator 3, Breakdown) and starring Michelle Monaghan (Source Code) with Academy Award winner Susan Sarandon (pictured below; Dead Man Walking, Rocky Horror Picture Show) in final negotiations to star, it was announced today by Exclusive Media Co-Chairmen, Nigel Sinclair and Guy East.
The pitch is what caught my interest as they described it as “a paranoia thriller that builds to a pulse-pounding crescendo, Still of Night is a smart, stylish ride packed with shocking twists that will give you nightmares – because it could actually happen to you.” Sounds dark.
“Katie Tyler (Michelle Monaghan) is an aspiring career woman with everything finally falling into place…until her sister Gwen disappears. Fully aware of Gwen’s tainted past and suddenly left to take care of her young daughter, Katie sets out determined to bring her back. But as she traces Gwen’s last whereabouts, Katie begins to suspect foul play, and soon finds herself tangled in the midst of a dangerous conspiracy with cruel and inhumane consequences. Trapped and running out of time, Katie must outwit a devious criminal (Susan Sarandon) to save herself and her sister – before it’s too late.”
Matt Jackson, Exclusive Media’s Executive Vice President and Head of US Production, will oversee production on the project which is scheduled to start shooting in August 2012.
