Premiere Entertainment Group, a Los Angeles-based sales, production, and financing company, has acquired the worldwide rights to horror-thriller BENEATH US starring Lynn Collins (John Carter, X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and James Tupper (HBO’s Pretty Little Lies).
The film follows a group of undocumented workers who are hired by an affluent woman (Collins) and her husband (Tupper) to work on their house, but the workers immediately sense something isn’t right with their employers and become trapped inside the home.
Written and directed by Max Pachman. Mark Mavrothalasitis shares writing credit. Producing are Luis Guerrero and Chris Lemos for Vital Pictures (Armored). Jay Hernandez (Suicide Squad) serves as executive producer and William Knochel as co-executive producer.
Premiere will introduce the social thriller to distributors during the American Film Market (AFM) with a screening at the Laemmle Monica Film Center on November 1st.
“We are excited to be teaming up with Luis and Chris on their unique and original elevated genre film,” says Premiere’s Vice President of Acquisitions Carlos Rincon. “Similar to GET OUT, the film intelligently deals with pertinent social issues in a suspenseful manner.”
Producers Guerrero and Lemos added, “We’re very excited to partner with Premiere Entertainment Group, and look forward to a successful relationship towards the selling of our film.”
Premiere Entertainment’s President & CEO Elias Axume negotiated the deal with producers Guerrero and Lemos.
