Lifetime Buys Thriller ‘Under the Bed’ Starring ‘Black Sails’ Actress Hannah New (EXCLUSIVE)

Lifetime has acquired worldwide rights to the telefilm thriller “Under the Bed,” starring Hannah New, Pat Healy and Beverly D’Angelo, Variety has learned exclusively.

“The Blair Witch Project” director Dan Myrick directed “Under the Bed” from his own script. Inspired by true events, “Under the Bed” follows a young woman who is trying to get over a recent romantic breakup, while unbeknownst to her, an obsessed stalker befriends her on social media and takes up residence in her home.

“Under the Bed” will premiere on Jan. 7. The movie was financed by Justin Shaner’s Sobe Brooke Studios in partnership with Radar Pictures, Appian Way and producers Shawn Papazian and Richard Halpern. The latter also receives “story by” credit.

Radar is currently in production on the “Jumanji” reboot at Sony and is in post-production on the Jon Hamm and Rosamund Pike thriller “High Wire Act,” which wrapped this summer in Morocco.

Myrick teamed with Eduardo Sanchez for “The Blair Witch Project,” a found footage psychological horror film of three student filmmakers (Heather Donahue, Michael C. Williams and Joshua Leonard) who hike in the Maryland woods to  film a documentary about a local legend known as the Blair Witch. The film, made for $35,000, grossed nearly $250 million worldwide.

Myrick is repped by APA, Media Talent Group and attorney Wayne Alexander.
