Sources say it is being planned for a wide release. Lionsgate seems to want to stay in the business with Reeves, having recently put out John Wick, the well-received actioner last fall.

Reeves, Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas star in the film, which centers on a father who lets two attractive young women into his home and soon realizes it was a bad idea.

During a screening Friday to open Sundance's midnight film series, Roth said that the project came together quickly. "From my phone, I sent [producer Cassian Elwes] my script," the Hostel director said. "He read it the next day. He got it to Keanu, and two weeks later, we got the money."
