Loft, The: Erik Van Looy’s English Remake of his 2008 Dutch Thriller

Theater attendance takes a big hit on Super Bowl Sunday, so no high-profile titles are opening this weekend.  Both Project Almanac and The Loft open after long delays.

The Loft is director Erik Van Looy‘s English-language remake of his 2008 Dutch thriller.

The $14 million title, about a group of men who share a loft used for illicit affairs, stars James Marsden and Karl Urban, while Matthias Schoenaerts reprises his role from the original film.

The thriller was originally supposed to be distributed by Warner per its deal with Joel Silver‘s Dark Castle, but it moved to Universal when Silver pacted with that studio.

However, Open Road films announced it would release The Loft after Universal pulled the movie from its August 2014 release.
