Sundance: Mickey Liddell Acquires Horror Film ‘Silent House’

Elizabeth Olsen stars in Chris Kentis and Laura Lau's remake of “La Casa Muda”

Chris Kentis and Laura Lau's horror film "Silent House" has just been picked up by Mickey Liddell's Liddell Entertainment, the company confirmed.

The company has acquired domestic and most international rights for a reported $3 million minimum, with a P&A commitment north of $3 million.

CAA negotiated the deal, which gives Liddell all territories except for the U.K., Scandinavia and the Middle East.

Liddell will work with the agency to set a distributor, with genre-savvy companies Lionsgate and The Weinstein Company said to be circling.

Elizabeth Olsen stars in "Silent House," which follows a family who return to their former house to spruce it up with the hope of selling it. A remake of Gustavo Hernandez' Uruguayan thriller "La Casa Muda," the film is edited as one continuous shot. It's that ambitious gimmick that could help the film find an audience.

Kentis and Lau previously directed "Open Water," which played Sundance in 2004.
