Freestyle Digital Media has acquired domestic rights to Don’t Sleep, a thriller written and directed by Rick Bieber that stars Dominic Sherwood, Cary Elwes, Drea de Matteo, Charlbi Dean Kriek and Jill Hennessy, Deadline reports. Don’t Sleep will bow in theaters day-and-date on September 29.
“The pic centers on two lovers (Sherwood and Kriek) who move into a guesthouse on an estate owned by Mr. and Mrs. Marino (Matteo and Rocco). When bizarre events begin to occur with increasing danger, the young couple must confront the horrors of a forgotten childhood.” Ken Clark and Eric Donaldson are producers.
Bieber, who co-produced this one, also produced the original Flatliners and the upcoming reboot from Columbia Pictures directed by Niels Arden Oplov that bows the same day.
