Lionsgate announced today that it has acquired from Exclusive Media the North American distribution rights to the Hammer production of The Quiet Ones, a supernatural thriller starring Jared Harris and Sam Claflin and will bring the film to theatres next year on April 25, 2014.
John Pogue directed the film from a script he wrote as well.
The film is inspired by true events and tells the story of an unorthodox, but charismatic professor who uses controversial methods and leads his best students off the grid to take part in a dangerous experiment: to create a poltergeist from negative human energy.
Jared Harris, Sam Claflin, Erin Richards, Olivia Cooke and Rory Fleck-Byrne star.
Pogue previously helmed Quarantine 2: Terminal.
