Image Entertainment has picked up all U.S. rights to Antti Jokinen’s “The Resident,” starring Hilary Swank, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Sir Christopher Lee, and Lee Pace. The film will be released in the spring of 2011.
The film stars Swank as a doctor who moves to Brooklyn after separating from her husband. The apartment seems too good to be true, and Swank’s character quickly realizes that she’s being watched within her new home.
Bill Bromiley, Chief Acquisitions Officer at Image Entertainment, noted on the film, “The accomplished cast and creative team behind the film have done an extraordinary job in bringing this compelling and thrilling story to life. We are proud to be a part of the new Hammer family and excited to be working with the team at Exclusive Media with their exceptional track record.”
Bromiley at Image negotiated the deal with Simon Oakes, President & CEO of Hammer Films.
