Sierra Pictures and Incentive Filmed Entertainment are producing the film which is now in post-production.
The film stars Sara Paxton, Dustin Milligan, Katharine McPhee, Chris Carmack, Alyssa Diaz, Joel David Moore, Donal Logue, Sinqua Walls and Chris Zylka and tells the story of college friends who spend a weekend at a lake house only to find that it's not safe to go into the water. Original huh!
Jesse Studenberg and Will Hayes wrote the screenplay with Chris Briggs and Mike Fleiss producing the film via their NextFilms banner along with Lynette Howell of Silverwood Films.
At AFM '10, Sierra sold the rights to Ellis’ film in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Benelux, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, CIS and the Baltics. This is the first Sierra film to acquire domestic distribution.
Sierra president and CEO Nick Meyer negotiated the new deal on behalf of Sierra and Incentive with Graham Taylor of WME Global on behalf of the filmmakers.
