Joel Silver's Dark Castle Entertainment has acquired Erik Van Looy's infidelity thriller, The Loft. Silver will be credited as an exec producer on the film along with Andrew Rona and Steve Richards.
The Loft is the highly anticipated English-language remake of Van Looy's own 2008 Belgian film Loft, the highest grossing indigenous box office hit of all time. The story follows five married friends who share a loft where each brings his mistress. When the dead body of an unknown woman is found there, they begin to suspect one another of murder.
Wentworth Miller, James Marsden, Karl Urban, Eric Stonestreet and Matthias Schoenaerts star alongside Rhona Mitra, Isabel Lucas, Rachael Taylor, Margarita Levieva and Kristin Lehman.
Wesley Strick (Doom) adapted Bart De Pauw's original screenplay. Anonymous Content's Steve Golin, Paul Green, Matt DeRoss and Adam Shulman produced along with original Loft producer Hilde De Laere of Belgian production powerhouse Woestijnvis.
It has yet to be determined whether the film will be released through Warner Bros, where Dark Castle is currently based, or Universal, where Silver just inked a 12-picture distribution deal.
