Home Invasion Aftermath in Overture’s ‘Taken’

On the heels of the success of THE STRANGERS, Overture Films has acquired a pitch from Karl Gajdusek (“Dead Like Me”) called Taken, with veteran producer Irwin Winkler attached to produce. The project is a dramatic thriller in which a married couple that has been coping with infidelity and other adversity heals its wounds after a home invasion; it is described as containing elements of “Panic Room” and “Unfaithful.” FUNNY GAMES was also a recent home invasion movie to do moderately well.
