Cannes: Nicola Peltz Joins Thomas Mann in 'Our House' (Exclusive)
Anthony Scott Burns will make his feature directing debut with the project.
Transformers: Age of Extinction actress Nicola Peltz is moving into Our House.
The sci-fi story, with a script from Moon screenwriter Nathan Parker, features Me and Earl and the Dying Girl star Thomas Mann as a man who has lost his parents in a car crash and leaves his promising future at MIT in order to work on an experiment to care for his siblings. But he accidentally invents a device that amplifies the paranormal activity within his family's house, possibly bringing back the spirits of loved ones and unleashing something much darker.
The film is based on the 2010 film Ghost From the Machine, written and directed by Matt Osterman.
Anthony Scott Burns will make his feature film directorial debut with the project. Lee Kim, Marty Katz and Ulf Israel are producing, while John Davis, Noah Segal, Adrian Love, Derek Dauchy, Nick Spicer and Kyle Franke will executive produce. The Canada/Germany co-production will begin shooting later this month in Toronto.
XYZ Films is selling to foreign buyers in Cannes and will co-represent the U.S with WME Global.
Peltz, who starred on A&E's Bates Motel, is a rising star after her appearance in 2014’s Transformers: Age of Extinction opposite Mark Wahlberg. Her other films include Affluenza and Youth in Oregon opposite Christina Applegate. She is repped by WME, Management 360 and Sloane Offer.
