Magnolia Pictures has gained U.S. rights to “The Ones Below,” a film that proposes to be a psychological thriller akin to Roman Polanski’s work. The story takes place in modern-day London and centers around a young engaged couple, played by Clemence Posey of “Harry Potter” fame and Stephen Campbell Moore. The two must deal with the torment that their new tenants downstairs make them suffer through. The film screened at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.
Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles said of the upcoming film, “David Farr has concocted an incredibly satisfying and clever suspense thriller evocative of classics like ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ and ‘Fatal Attraction.'”
“The Ones Below” is a Cuba Pictures production, produced by Nikki Parrott of Tigerlily Films in association with Protagonist Pictures, with funding from BBC Films and BFI. Executive producers include Dixie Linder, Nick Marston, Ben Hall, Christine Langan, Nigel Williams, Joe Oppenheimer and Lizzie Francke.
Magnolia is planning a 2016 theatrical release.
