Similar to how Paramount unloaded The Cloverfield Paradox to Netflix, the studio has sold all global rights for its Paramount Players horror film Eli to Netflix, Deadline reports.
Eli centers around a boy receiving treatment for his auto-immune disorder who discovers that the house he’s living isn’t as safe as he thought.
Lili Taylor, who also starred in James Wan The Conjuring, as well as The Haunting (1999), will play Dr. Isabella Horn, the “immunologist” who treats Eli.
Charlie Shotwell, Max Martini (50 Shades of Grey, Pacific Rim) and Sadie Sink also star.
Ciaran Foy (Citadel, Sinister 2) directed the movie from a script by David Chirchirillo, Ian Goldberg and Richard Naing. Eli was a 2015 Black List horror script and Paramount was originally planning to release the film on Jan. 4.
Intrepid Pictures’ Trevor Macy produced Eli with John Zaozirny with Melinda Nishioka as EP.
