London and Los Angeles-based Cool Hand International has optioned the psychological horror script The Cellar from writer-director John Gary and has attached Lucy Davis, Jared Harris and Emilia Fox to star.

Brian Cox is also confirmed for a cameo role in the tale of a group of wedding guests who get trapped in a cellar in a remote castle. Cool Hand will be among the film's producers.

John Gary's manager Todd Sharp of the Mayhem Group brokered the deal with Todd Rubenstein of Barnes, Morris, Klein, Mark, Yorn, Barnes and Levine and Cool Hand's founder and head of finance and business affairs, Luke G-Jones.
