RLJ Entertainment nabs Daniel Robbins’ horror-thriller “Uncaged”

PanARMENIAN.Net - RLJ Entertainment has acquired all U.S. rights to Daniel Robbins’ horror-thriller “Uncaged” under its Image Entertainment brand, TheWrap has learned.

Robbins is a first-time filmmaker who co-wrote the script with Mark Rapaport and Looch Gelfand. Robbins and Rapaport also produced the film with Yoni Frager and Adam Werth.

Ben Getz and Gene Jones (“The Sacrament”) star in “Uncaged,” which follows a college student who attempts to discover the cause of his sleepwalking, only to uncover a terrifying secret.

“Uncaged” was executive produced by J.D. Lifshitz and Raphael Margules and BoulderLight Pictures. Lifshitz and Margules also negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers along with RLJ’s Ward.

“We’re excited to work with a young filmmaker whose vision effectively translates to the big screen,” said RLJ’s chief acquisitions officer Mark Ward. “‘Uncaged’ takes audiences through uncanny twists and turns, leaving moviegoers thrilled and frightened at the same time.”

BoulderLight Pictures is the production and international sales company that recently wrapped “Dementia” and “Contracted: Phase II,” both of which will be released by IFC. The company is currently in pre-production on its next feature.

RLJ Entertainment’s recent releases include Joe Dante’s “Burying the Ex” starring Anton Yelchin, Marc Lawrence’s “The Rewrite” with Hugh Grant and Marisa Tomei, and Tom McCarthy’s “The Cobbler,” which stars Adam Sandler and Steve Buscemi.
