Jacob Tierney's thriller, "Good Neighbours" has been acquired by Magnolia Pictures. The disrtributor picked up the U.S. rights to the film from Myriad Pictures. Magnolia's Tom Quinn, SVP of Acquisitions, negotiated the deal with Myriad CEO and President Kirk D’Amico and SVP Business Affairs David Ducar. "Good Neighbours" received its world premiere at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival and will screen this weekend at the Whistler Film Festival in British Columbia, Canada.
The film centers on a serial killer who is on the loose in the dead of winter. Three residents of a small apartment building retreat indoors, but learn they may not be any safer.
“Jacob Tierney has crafted a fun, twisted thriller with a great cast that elicits just as many chills as they do laughs,” commented Tom Quinn, SVP of Magnolia in a statement.
“We are very impressed with what Magnolia is doing across their platforms of distribution including theatrical, VOD and DVD. They are really pioneering new release patterns with new release windows and pricings. We are so pleased with their enthusiasm and release plans for Good Neighbours," added D’Amico
Alliance Films is releasing the title in Canada, and Myriad will handle remaining international sales.
