RLJ Entertainment has picked up US rights to Jon Knautz’s psychological horror film The Cleaning Lady from the UK-based genre specialist Jinga Films.
The film follows a rich beautician who distracts herself from an affair with a married man by befriending her reclusive cleaner, who has a facial scar from a traumatic childhood incident.
Jinga had previously secured deals on the film for the UK (101), Middle East (Falcon), Japan (Pflug) and Taiwain (MovieCloud).
The film is Canadian director Knautz’s fifth feature following Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer, The Shrine, Girl House and Goddess Of Love.
Knautz previously made The Cleaning Lady as a short in 2016; the feature premiered at London’s FrightFest in 2018.
