Hollywood Reporter informs us that former horror star Christopher Lee has signed up to return to Hammer Films, the company that made him famous with classics like CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN and HORROR OF DRACULA. Lee will co-star with Hilary Swank in a thriller titled INVASION OF PRIVACY (previously known as THE RESIDENT).
The new Hammer is a very different undertaking as part of Exclusive, which in turn is backed by the strategic investment group Cyrte Investments.
Exclusive Film Distribution, which debuted to buyers during this year’s European Film Market in Berlin will be selling the movie during the upcoming Marche du Film.
Exclusive head of sales Peter Naish said: “It has been exciting to see this project evolve into such a high profile commercial thriller which is now ready to leap off the page.”
The movie details the story of a woman who, after separating from her husband, moves into a loft apartment in Brooklyn, New York and finds herself at the center of some unwanted attention.
