Myriad Pictures has introduced buyers here to crime thriller The Keys To The Street starring Gemma Arterton, Tim Roth and Max Irons.

The Czech Republic’s Julius Sevcik will direct the psychological thriller set in London’s exclusive Regent’s Park area where a young woman accepts a house-sitting assignment to escape her violent and disturbed ex-boyfriend.

As a series of murders in the neighborhood deepens the woman embarks on a mysterious affair.

The Keys To The Street is scheduled to begin production in the UK in the first quarter of 2014.

Pretty Pictures and Apollo Productions produce with Gail Mutrux and Steve Norris, CEO of Apollo Productions, serving as producers. 

Myriad head Kirk D’Amico and David Ducar negotiated the deal.

“We were thrilled when Steve and Gail brought this fantastic but long gestating project to us,” said D’Amico. “We think that audiences will love how Christopher Nolan and Michael Stokes have adapted this popular English mystery novel… with a dark edge. Julius and the producers have assembled an extraordinary cast headed by the accomplished and very lovely Gemma Arterton.”

Myriad and CAA represent US rights.
