Picturehouse Acquires Adam Wingard’s ‘The Guest’

Picturehouse has acquired all U.S. rights to the Sundance pic “The Guest” starring “Downton Abbey” actor Dan Stevens.

Adam Wingard helmed the pic with Simon Barrett penning the script. Snoot Entertainment’s Keith Calder and Jessica Calder produced.

The film tells the story of a young soldier who arrives on the doorstep of the Peterson family, claiming to be a good friend of their beloved son who died in action. The Petersons welcome David into their home and into their lives, but when people start mysteriously dying in town, mayhem ensues as their teenage daughter Anna starts wondering if David is responsible.

The deal was negotiated by Bob Berney on behalf of Picturehouse, and by CAA and Erik Hyman of Loeb & Loeb on behalf of the filmmakers.
