The thriller His House from director Remi Weekes is set to premiere in the Midnight Section of the Sundance Film Festival, and ahead of the fest, it’s been picked up by Netflix.
Deadline reports today that Netflix has made “a preemptive world rights acquisition.”
In the film, “A young refugee couple makes a harrowing escape from war-torn Sudan, and then struggle to adjust to their new life in a small English town that has an evil lurking beneath the surface.”
Wunmi Mosaku (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), Sope Dirisu (The Huntsman: Winter’s War) and Matt Smith (Charlie Says) star in the BBC/New Regency film.
Weekes wrote the script with Felicity Evans and Toby Venables.
