In a very Hitchcockian plot, the pic follows five married friends who share a loft where each of them bring their mistresses. When the body of an unknown woman is found in the loft, they begin to suspect one another of murder.
With a hint of Very Bad Things and a dash of Alfred Hitchcock’s Rope, Joel Silver’s Dark Castle Entertainment banner has acquired the infidelity thriller Loft from Anonymous Content and Belgian banner Woestijnvis, Variety reports. It has yet to be determined whether the film will be released through Warner Bros., where Dark Castle is currently based, or Universal, where Silver just inked a 12-picture distribution deal.
The Erik Van Looy-directed pic is an English-language remake of his own 2008 Belgian film. “The edgy indie follows five married friends who share a loft where each brings his mistress. When the dead body of an unknown woman is found there, they begin to suspect one another of murder.”
Wentworth Miller, James Marsden, Karl Urban, Eric Stonestreet and Matthias Schoenaerts star alongside Rhona Mitra, Isabel Lucas, Rachael Taylor, Margarita Levieva and Kristin Lehman.
Wesley Strick (Doom) adapted Bart De Pauw’s original screenplay.
