Sony Home Entertainment strikes UK deal for Retreat

Psychological thriller will star Thandie Newton, Jason Isaacs and David Tennant.

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has taken UK rights to Retreat, a Magnet Films project set to star Thandie Newton, Jason Isaacs and David Tennant.

Carl Tibbetts will make his feature directorial debut; Magnet’s Gary Sinyor produces.

Executive producers are David Frost & Michael Rosenberg.

The film is scheduled to shoot this summer in North Wales. The plot follows a couple who go to a remote island cottage to try to rebuild their marriage. Instead a stranger arrives on their doorstep with frightening news.

Dave G Bishop, Head of Acquisitions, Northern Europe, SPHE, said, “We’re excited to be working with Magnet Films on this fantastic project. Carl Tibbets has written a thrilling script that keeps you guessing to the very end and with such great British acting talent attached, we’re confident the film will be both a critical and commercial success.”

Gary Sinyor, Managing Director, Magnet Films, added, “Retreat has the potential to be not just a crowd pleaser, but also a critical success based on the intelligent page-turner of a script and the marquee cast.”
