Two actors with sparkling eyes and killer smiles are teaming up for a new film called Loft. According to Variety, James Marsden and Patrick Wilson have signed on to star in the thriller together. Brace yourself, it’s a remake, but a remake of Belgian film from 2008, so it’s hacky but not too hacky (if that makes sense).
Loft will be directed by Erik Van Looy, who also helmed the original from a script written by Wesley Strick ( A Nightmare on Elm Street). The film centers on “five married friends who decide to rent a loft together where they can bring their mistresses. When the body of an unknown woman is found in the loft, they realize that they don’t know each other as well as they thought and begin to suspect one another of murder.”
Do you know what this premise reminds us of? If you take away the drama, suspense, and of course the murder, you’d have Boys’ Night Out. It’s a 1962 comedy that starred James Garner, as one of four men who rent an apartment strictly for the purpose of bedding mistresses.
In Loft, there’s obviously a sense of paranoia and despair throughout the story and we can’t wait to see it! Wilson and Marsden are both amazing and versatile actors who can do comedy and drama. We’re excited to see who else they cast.
