From the press release:
KINCAID, KENTUCKY, June 22, 2017 – Aviron Pictures and The Fyzz Facility Pictures announced today that principal photography on STRANGERS, a horror film inspired by the 2008 smash hit THE STRANGERS, has begun in Northern Kentucky. The film is directed by Johannes Roberts (47 METERS DOWN) from a script written by Bryan Bertino (THE STRANGERS) and Ben Ketai (THE FOREST). The film stars Emmy Award® nominated Christina Hendricks (“MAD MEN”), Martin Henderson (THE RING), Bailee Madison (“ONCE UPON A TIME”) and Lewis Pullman (AFTERMATH). The Fyzz Facility’s James Harris, Mark Lane, Wayne Marc Godfrey and Robert Jones will produce. The Fyzz are also fully financing. Intrepid Pictures’ Trevor Macy, who produced THE STRANGERS, will serve as Executive Producer. Jon D. Wagner serves as line producer. BLOOM is handling international sales.
In STRANGERS, a family’s road trip takes a dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with some relatives and find it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family’s every limit as they struggle to survive.
“I’m honored to get to bring a fresh perspective to the terrifying concept depicted in THE STRANGERS, this time with a whole family in isolation fighting together for survival,” says director Roberts. “We’re excited to bring our masked villains to a whole new generation and hope that fans of the original will welcome seeing them terrorize unsuspecting innocents once again – but this time in a trailer park.”
Joining Roberts on the film is director of photography Ryan Samul (COLD IN JULY), production designer Freddy Waff (BONE TOMAHAWK) and costume designer Carla Shivener (“CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR”).
Johannes Roberts is repped by CAA.
