Dark Castle moves into ‘Loft’

Joel Silver will exec produce thriller

Joel Silver’s Dark Castle Entertainment banner has acquired the infidelity thriller “Loft” from Anonymous Content and Belgian banner Woestijnvis. It has yet to be determined whether the film will be released through Warner Bros., where Dark Castle is currently based, or Universal, where Silver just inked a 12-picture distribution deal.

Silver will now be credited as an exec producer on “Loft” along with Andrew Rona and Steve Richards.

In addition, Dark Castle is in production on “Getaway,” a thriller starring Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez. Details on that project were not immediately available.

Dark Castle is currently working with Emmett/Furla Films on Albert Hughes’ actioner “Motor City,” which has Gerard Butler attached to star, though Gary Oldman and Amber Heard are no longer involved with the project.

As for “Loft,” the Erik Van Looy-directed pic is an English-language remake of his own 2008 Belgian film. Edgy indie follows five married friends who share a loft where each brings his mistress. When the dead body of an unknown woman is found there, they begin to suspect one another of murder.

Wentworth Miller, James Marsden, Karl Urban, Eric Stonestreet and Matthias Schoenaerts star alongside Rhona Mitra, Isabel Lucas, Rachael Taylor, Margarita Levieva and Kristin Lehman.

Wesley Strick (“Doom”) adapted Bart De Pauw’s original screenplay. Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin, Paul Green, Matt DeRoss and Adam Shulman produced along with original “Loft” producer Hilde DeLaere of Woestijnvis.
