Production is underway in Toronto and Port Hope, ON on the horror thriller, Our House, the first feature film from director Anthony Scott Burns. The Canada-Germany coproduction is produced by Prospero Pictures, Resolute Films and Entertainment and Senator Film Produktion.
The film, a remake of the 2010 sci-fi film Ghost from the Machine, is written by Moon screenwriter Nathan Parker. It follows Ethan (played by Me and Earl and the Dying Girl‘s Thomas Mann), a young genius who accidentally creates a device that can potentially bring spirits back from the dead.
The producers are targeting Sundance for the film’s premiere and sales at the Berlin market. Our House has already been pre-sold in a number of territories including Elevation Pictures in Canada, Wild Bunch in Germany, Sun Distribution in Latin America and Spain, Abbolita for multiple territories and Falcon Films in the Middle East. XYZ Films are handling foreign sales and co-repping domestic sales with WME.
