Dimension docks in Loucka’s ‘Boathouse’

Softley to helm, co-produce supernatural thriller

With femmes fueling the fright biz, Dimension Films is looking to revamp the sex thriller genre by snapping up David Loucka pitch “The Boathouse.”

Iain Softley is aboard to direct and will produce with his partner Sarah Curtis through their Forthcoming Prods. banner along with Ehren Kruger and Daniel Bobker.

Supernatural thriller centers on a mysterious young woman whose new beau discovers that her past lovers died under suspicious circumstances. He begins to suspect she may be cursed.

“The Boathouse” is a “standout horror story, a scary film that explores sexual seduction in a way that the genre rarely braves to do,” Kruger said.

Softley is prepping to start production on New Line’s “Inkheart” later this fall. Past helming credits include “The Skeleton Key,” which Kruger penned and he and Bobker produced.

Loucka’s spec “Dream House” was recently set up at Universal by Bobker/Kruger Films.

Softley is repped by ICM, while Loucka is repped by Original Artists.
