Netflix Acquires ‘The Open House’ Starring ’13 Reasons Why’ Actor Dylan Minnette (EXCLUSIVE)

Netflix has acquired worldwide rights to the thriller “The Open House” starring “13 Reasons Why” breakout Dylan Minnette, sources tell Variety.

Written and directed by Matt Angel and Suzanne Coote, “The Open House” centers on a teenager (Minnette) and his mother (Piercey Dalton) who find themselves besieged by threatening forces when they move into a new house.

The pic is produced by Dan Angel and Chip Rosenbloom. The film will premiere everywhere Netflix is available Jan. 19, 2018.

Netflix and Minnette already have a solid relationship following the overwhelming success of “13 Reasons Why,” which has been greenlit for a second season. Prior to “13 Reasons Why,” Minnette had starring roles in Sony’s “Goosebumps” and Screen Gems’ “Don’t Breathe.” He is also known for playing President Grant’s son in ABC’s “Scandal.”

He is repped by WME and Monster Talent Management.

“The Open House” marks the directorial debut for Coote, who double-majored in film and music at the New School in New York City. Matt Angel got his start when he wrote and directed a pilot called “Half.” Inspired by a true story, the project was crowdfunded from a Kickstarter campaign, and sold to Sony Pictures TV and NBC. Angel then sold a large-scale drama titled “Ten” to Sony, and was commissioned to write feature scripts for both Millennium and Broken Road Productions.

Matt Angel and Coote are represented by Devon Jackson at Trademark Talent and attorney Derek Kroeger at Myman Greenspan.
