Lidell nabs ‘Silent House’

Shingle gets most world rights to horror pic

Mickey Liddell’s Liddell Ent. has snapped up worldwide right to Sundance horror pic “Silent House,” excluding Blighty, Scandinavia and the Middle East.

A domestic deal is expected to unfold shortly after CAA negotiated the deal with Liddell for a reported $3 million minimum with a P&A commitment north of $3 million. A number of U.S. buyers are circling the project including Lionsgate and the Weinstein Co.

Silent House,” an English remake of the Uruguayan “La Casa Muda,” is the second pic from “Open Water” helmers Chris Kentis and Laura Lau. It toplines Elizabeth Olsen and follows the tale of a family who returns to their longtime summerhouse after it was violated by squatters in the off-season.

Gaul’s Elle Driver keeps Brit, Scandinavian and Middle Eastern rights for the pic.
