London-based sales outfit Salt has inked a German-speaking Europe and Benelux deal with Splendid Film on their new horror-thriller The Neighbor, from well-known genre writers Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, reports ScreenDaily.
“Set in New Mexico, the film follows a man who discovers the dark truth about his secretive neighbor and what, or who, he may be keeping in the cellar. Casting is underway.”
Dunstan, who wrote Feast, Saw IV, V and VI with Melton and was director of The Collector and its sequel, The Collection (also both written by Melton), will direct.
Producers are Brett Forbes and Patrick Rizzotti of Fortress Features.
