Searchlight Pictures is nearing a $12 million worldwide deal for David Bruckner’s horror film “The Night House,” an individual with knowledge of the deal told TheWrap.
The film stars Rebecca Hall, Evan Jonigkeit, Stacy Martin and Sarah Goldberg, and was written by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski. It follows a widow (Hall) who begins to uncover her recently deceased husband’s secrets.
This is the first major deal out of the ground at Sundance, with some films having been pre-sold before the festival. Representatives for Searchlight and Endeavor did not respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
Of course, Bruckner is best known for his Netflix hit horror film “The Ritual,” which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2017. His other credits include the TV series “Creepshow” and the short titled “Talk Show.”
Hall’s credits include “Professor Marston & the Wonder Women,” “The Dinner,” “Holmes & Watson,” “Iron Man 3,” “Christine” and “Vicky Christina Barcelona.”
