Millennium buys rights to ‘Intruders’

Fresnadillo thriller premiered in Toronto

Millennium Entertainment has acquired North American rights to Juan Carlos Fresnadillo’s ”Intruders” and will release the thriller in April.

Millennium made the announcement Tuesday, a month after ”Intruders” had its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival. Pic also screened at the San Sebastian festival.

It’s the second acquisition of a TIFF title for Millennium, which bought domestic rights last month to cop thriller ”Rampart.”

”Intruders” stars Clive Owen, Carice Van Houten, Daniel Bruhl, Pilar Lopez de Ayala, Ella Purnell and Izan Corchero, from a screenplay by Nicolas Casariego and Jaime Marques. Producers are Enrique Lopez Lavigne, Belen Atienza and Mercedes Gamero with Jesus de la Vega and Ricardo Garcia Arrojo exec producing.

”Intruders” centers on two children living in different countries who are visited each night by a faceless intruder, a terrifying being who wants to take possession of them.

Fresnadillo’s credits include ”Intact,” ”28 Weeks Later” and the short film ”Esposados.” He’s been tapped by Summit to direct the ”Highlander” later this year.

Vincent Scordino negotiated the deal on behalf of Millennium Entertainment with Rich Klubeck and David Flynn of the UTA Independent Film Group representing production.
