Currently in postproduction, the film stars Will Patton (Remember the Titans, Armageddon), Samantha Mathis (American Psycho, The Punisher), Sterling Jerins (The Conjuring series, World War Z), Luke Prael (Boy in a Backpack), and Tammy Blanchard (The Good Shepard, Blue Jasmine), with Boaz Yakin (Remember the Titans, Safe) directing from his own script.
Set in a mysterious boarding school where children deemed undesirable are committed, the plot sees 12-year-old Jacob Felson (Prael) start to suspect that something much more sinister than education is going on when one of the students is found dead.
Maven Pictures co-founders Trudie Styler (Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels, American Honey) and Celine Rattray (The Kids Are All Right, American Honey) produce alongside Scott Lochmus (The Joneses, London Town), and Jason Orans (Goodbye Solo, Night Catches Us).
IM Global took international rights to Boarding School in a deal negotiated by its international sales and distribution president Michael Rothstein with Maven’s Nic Marshall. WME is handling domestic sales.
Also on Maven’s upcoming slate is Freak Show, starring Alex Lawther (The Imitation Game, Departure), Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine, Zombieland) and Bette Midler (Beaches, The First Wives Club); thriller Wildling, directed by Fritz Bohm and starring Bel Powley and Liv Tyler; and Novitiate, directed by Maggie Betts and starring Margaret Qualley and Melissa Leo.
