Netflix Preempts Sundance Pic ‘His House’, Midnight Thriller With Timely Immigration Premise

  • Deadline
Exclusive: On the eve of the start of the Sundance Film Festival, Netflix has gotten on the board early by making a preemptive world rights acquisition of His House, a film written and directed by Remi Weekes that premieres Monday in the Midnight Section and fuses genre to a most timely premise. A young refugee couple makes a harrowing escape from war-torn Sudan, and then struggle to adjust to their new life in a small English town that has an evil lurking beneath the surface. Weekes wrote the script with Felicity Evans and Toby Venables.

The film, which stars Wunmi Mosaku (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), Sope Dirisu (The Huntsman: Winter’s War) and Matt Smith, is a co-production between New Regency and BBC. Pic is produced by New Regency’s Arnon Milchan, Vertigo Entertainment’s Roy Lee, Martin Gentles and Edward King of Starchild Pictures and Aidan Elliott in association with BBC.
