Pair playing ‘House’

FilmNation, A Bigger Boat team on Mostow thriller

FilmNation Entertainment and A Bigger Boat are combining to finance and produce “House at the End of the Street,” a psychological thriller based on a story written by Jonathan Mostow.

The film will be directed by Mark Tonderai from a David Loucka script. Tonderai helmed “Hush,” a Pathe/IFC-distributed thriller that won a British Independent Film Award.

Pic is described as a thriller in the vein of “Psycho,” aimed at a contemporary young audience.

A Bigger Boat’s Peter Block will produce with FilmNation’s Aaron Ryder, Mostow and Hal Lieberman.

The film had been set up at Universal and developed through the discretionary fund of Mostow/Lieberman. The producers, who subsequently split up, got the picture in turnaround and set it to be co-financed by FilmNation’s Glen Basner and GreeneStreet Films, which partners with Block in A Bigger Boat.

Intention is to start production later this year. That will likely make the film the first production for FilmNation since Basner formed the venture in 2008 as an international sales arm and brought Ryder in shortly after to start a production division. Block just wrapped the John Carpenter-directed thriller “The Ward” as well as “Frozen.”

We believe this will be to ‘Psycho’ what ‘Disturbia’ was to ‘Rear Window,’ but with the addition of a strong female lead,” Ryder said.

In related news, Block has taken U.S. rights to J. Blakeson’s kidnapping thriller “The Disappearance of Alice Creed,” starring Gemma Arterton, which preemed in Toronto.

Film will be released by Anchor Bay, with whom he has a relationship.

Adrian Sturges produced and CinemaNX’s Steve Christian and Marc Samuelson were executive producers and will self-distribute in the U.K. WestEnd Films handles international sales.
