Magnolia picks up Myriad’s ‘Good Neighbours’

Jay Baruchel, Scott Speedman star in thriller

Magnolia Films has acquired all U.S. rights to Myriad Pictures’ thriller “Good Neighbours,” directed by Jacob Tierney and toplining Jay Baruchel, Scott Speedman and Emily Hampshire.

“Good Neighbours” had its world preem at the Toronto Film Fest in September, and screens this weekend at the Whistler Film Fest in British Columbia.

Set in the dead of winter, “Good Neighbours” tells the story of a serial killer on the loose and three residents of small apartment building who retreat indoors.

“Jacob Tierney has crafted a fun, twisted thriller with a great cast that elicits just as many chills as they do laughs,” Magnolia senior veep Tom Quinn said.

Project reteams Tierney and Baruchel, who worked together on “The Trotsky.”

Jacob Tierney is the son of Canadian producer Kevin Tierney, a producer on “Good Neighbours.”

Alliance Films will distribute “Good Neighbours” in Canada. Myriad will handle remaining international sales.

Quinn negotiated the deal for Magnolia, while Myriad CEO-prexy Kirk D’Amico and senior veep for business affairs David Ducar negotiated for Myriad.

“We are very impressed with what Magnolia is doing across their platforms of distribution, including theatrical, VOD and DVD. They are pioneering new release patterns with new release windows and pricings,” D’Amico said.

Myriad’s slate also includes financial thriller “Margin Call,” toplining Kevin Spacey, Jeremy Irons, Zachary Quinto and Stanley Tucci.

On Thursday, the Sundance Film Festival announced that “Margin Call” will play in the fest’s premiere section in January.
