Alex Pettyfer, whose credits include “I Am Number Four” and “Magic Mike,” is attached to lead director Ricardo de Montreuil’s psychological horror feature “The Lost Ones.”
The Exchange is handling the movie’s worldwide sales rights, and will be introducing the title to buyers at the virtual European Film Market, which runs until Friday.
The film is the story of a young family on the run from unseen spirits haunting their daughter. They move to a secluded house to keep her safe from unwanted scrutiny, but when her “visions” attract the attention of a disturbed neighbor, the family is forced into a struggle for survival with both the living and the dead.
“The Lost Ones,” currently in pre-production and scheduled to be filmed in Ireland in May, is an original screenplay by Miles Kelly and Brandon Robinson, to be directed by De Montreuil (“Lowriders”), and produced by Mini Mach Media’s Emerson Machtus (“The Little Hours”) and Fernando Ferro (“Birthday Cake”) with Dark Dreams Entertainment’s Pettyfer and James Ireland.
