Spotlight Pictures, the company behind such titles as ESCAPE FROM TOMORROW, ATLAS SHRUGGED, and DETENTION OF THE DEAD has announced that they have acquired the foreign sales rights to the new film THE DEVIL YOU KNOW. Directed by James Oakley, THE DEVIL YOU KNOW stars Oscar nominee Rosamund Pike (GONE GIRL) and Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence (SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, AMERICAN HUSTLE, THE HUNGER GAMES), Lena Olin (ENEMIES: A LOVE STORY), and Dean Winters (JOHN WICK).
The film tells the story of Zoe Hughes (Pike), an actress who struggles to stay in the spotlight when the shadow of her ex-movie mother, Kathryn (Olin), follows her wherever she goes. It’s been a while since Kathryn has thrown her hat in the ring, but when she decides to really get back into acting, it’s no surprise that the sudden return to fame has taken a toll on Zoe’s already faltering career. Suddenly, Kathryn begins receiving strange threats from an unknown source, and it isn’t long before a confrontation is in order. However, who exactly is harassing Kathryn? Is it Zoe? And if so, what does she hope to gain by toying with one of the most popular actresses in Hollywood?
A still for the film has arrived, and it shows Pike looking nervous, apprehensive, and dolled up in front of bright lights, like she’s about to walk onto a stage. What do you think?
