Director John Pogue’s supernatural thriller THE QUIET ONES now has a deal with Lionsgate U.K. for the British rights to the film, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Hopefully, the U.S. rights will follow soon.
Inspired by true events, the movie details the story of an unorthodox but charismatic professor who uses controversial methods and leads his best students off the grid to take part in a dangerous experiment: to create a poltergeist from negative human energy.
THE QUIET ONES stars Jared Harris, Sam Claflin, Erin Richards, Olivia Cooke and Rory Fleck-Byrne.
Exclusive Media president of international sales and distribution Alex Walton says of the deal,
â€œLionsgate has a phenomenal reputation for releasing quality supernatural and genre titles and we are thrilled to be working with them on THE QUIET ONES.Â Buyers have been responding really well to this unique twist on a classic poltergeist story, and we anticipate closing the remaining deals on the film at the European Film Market in Berlin.â€
