Films include Eli Roth’s Knock Knock, Anton Corbijn’s Life, Boychoir starring Dustin Hoffman and Spooks feature.

German distributor SquareOne Entertainment has acquired all German-speaking rights to four upcoming films, which all generated major buzz at the Cannes Marché in May.

The titles include Knock Knock, Life, Boychoir and Spooks: The Greater Good, all of which SquareOne will release theatrically in 2015.

Knock Knock was acquired from Voltage Pictures. Eli Roth is currently filming the feature in Chile with stars Keanu Reeves, Ana de Armas and Lorenza Izzo, of which the latter starred in Roth’s upcoming horror The Green Inferno.

The film tells the story of two young women, who show up unexpectedly at the home of a married man (Reeves) where they seduce him and wreak havoc on his life.

The deal was negotiated by Al Munteanu on behalf of SquareOne Entertainment and by Elisabeth Costa de Beauregard on behalf of Voltage Pictures.

Hemsworth joins Winslet on Dressmaker

9 May 2014 12:00 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Isla Fisher, Elizabeth Debicki also board drama readying for October shoot.

The Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth, Now You See Me star Isla Fisher and rising talent Elizabeth Debicki are set to join Kate Winslet and Judy Davis in Jocelyn Moorhouse’s romantic drama The Dressmaker, which Embankment Films will be shopping in Cannes.

Principal photography is due to get underway in Victoria, Australia on October 13, 2014. Embankment co-reps Us rights with CAA.

Winslet will play an avenging angel who returns home to the remote country town from which she fled as a child after being accused of murder, to make amends with her eccentric mother.

Although ostracised, as an exponent of the most stunning 1950’s haute couture inspired by Madame Vionnet and Balenciaga, she liberates and empowers the town’s women with her quick wit and beautiful clothing. She unexpectedly finds love and ultimately exacts sweet revenge on those who wronged her.
