What do you get when you put Modern Family star and Prison Break star in one movie? You get the dark indie thriller titled The Loft!
We’re talking about Eric Stonestreet and Wentworth Miller, who are set to star in the whole thing. They will join the cast that already includes previously reported Patrick Wilson and James Marsden.
Of course this sounds familiar to you! We already had a little chat about this project few months ago, when we mentioned that a remake of a 2008 Belgian film directed by Erik Van Looy is coming, and that Van Looy will return to direct the English-language version of his film from a script by Wesley Strick (A Nightmare on Elm Street).
The Loft will follow: “five married friends who share a loft where each of them bring their mistresses. When the body of an unknown woman is found in the loft, they begin to suspect one another of murder.”
Or, if you prefer more details here’s the synopsis from the original movie:
“Five men share a secret that has deadly consequences in this thriller from Belgium. When Filip, a playboy with a wild streak, finally settles down and gets married, his good friend Vincent, presents him and three of his friends with a special gift.
Vincent is an architect, and after supervising the renovation of a apartment block, he installed a luxurious penthouse flat for the use of himself and his married pals, where they can enjoy liaisons with other women without their spouses becoming any the wiser. Filip, Vincent and three of their buddies – hard-drinking ladies’ man Marnix, Filip’s psychoanalyst brother Chris and taciturn Luc – are the only ones with keys to the flat, and the only ones who are supposed to know it exists.
But one day one of the five checks into the apartment and discovers a woman’s bloody corpse shackled to the bed; one of their group is a murderer, but who is the killer and how can the others keep this a secret from the police and their families?”
Production on The Loft is expected to begin later this spring.
