Magnolia Pictures’ genre label Magnet Releasing has acquired world rights to Leigh Janiak’s Honeymoon (read our review), which had its world premiere at SXSW this month, reports Deadline.

The story centers on young newlyweds who travel to remote lake country for their honeymoon. Shortly after arriving, he finds her wandering and disoriented in the middle of the night. As she becomes more distant and her behavior increasingly peculiar, he begins to suspect something more sinister than sleepwalking took place in the woods.

The pic starring “Game Of Thrones‘” Rose Leslie and Harry Treadaway next plays at Tribeca in April and the film will be released domestically later this year.

Janiak co-wrote the film with Phil Graziadei; Patrick Baker and Esmé Howard produced.
