Samuel Goldwyn Films has picked up worldwide rights, excluding Canada, to the family sci-fi film Let Us In, by director Craig Moss.
The indie — which stars Makenzie Moss, O’Neill Monahan, Sadie Stanley, Eric Callero, Mackenzie Ziegler and Tobin Bell — portrays a spirited 12-year-old girl and her best friend investigating the sudden disappearances of teenagers in their small town, only to find they might be up against forces they can’t even imagine.
“I watched this movie with my kids, and we all loved it. It’s so rare to be able to find a film that my entire family can watch together. It’s a film that reminds me of the great movies I grew up on like Goonies,” Peter Goldwyn, president of Samuel Goldwyn Films, said in a statement.
Let Us In is produced, co-written and directed by Moss, along with co-writer and executive producer JW Callero and their Just Wanna Make Movies banner. “JW and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with Samuel Goldwyn Films. I have a history with this company and know we’re in good hands when it comes to releasing our film,” Moss added in his own statement.
The distribution deal was negotiated by Goldwyn on behalf of Samuel Goldwyn Films and Moss on behalf of the filmmakers. Samuel Goldwyn Films’ upcoming release slate includes the Oscar winner Another Round and The Man Who Sold His Skin.
