Eric Stonestreet, Wentworth Miller in ‘Loft’

'Modern Family' star, 'Stoker' scribe in talks for edgy indie

Exclusive: Anonymous Content continues to fill out the ensemble cast of its thriller “Loft,” as “Modern Family” star Eric Stonestreet and “Stoker” scribe Wentworth Miller are in final negotiations to join the edgy indie.

As Variety first reported, Patrick Wilson and James Marsden are set to star in the pic, which follows five married friends who share a loft where each of them bring their mistresses. When the body of an unknown woman is found in the loft, they begin to suspect one another of murder.

Erik Van Looy is directing the English-language remake, having helmed the 2008 Belgian original. “A Nightmare on Elm St.” scribe Wesley Strick is adapting Bart De Pauw’s original screenplay.

Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin, Paul Green, Matt DeRoss and Adam Shulman will produce along with original “Loft” producer Hilde DeLaere of Belgian banner Woestijnvis.
