NO ONE LIVES
London, May 9th, 2011 – Pathe UK and WWE Studios today announce that they have partnered to co-finance and distribute NO ONE LIVES, written by David Cohen, and to be directed by visionary genre director Ryuhei Kitamura (THE MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN).
The picture stars Luke Evans (THE THREE MUSKETEERS, IMMORTALS, THE RAVEN) and will begin principal photography in New Orleans on June 13th.
The producers are Elton Brand and Harry Knapp for Milk & Media and Kami Naghdi for Constance Media.
A ruthless criminal gang takes a young couple hostage and goes to ground in an abandoned house in the middle of nowhere. When the captive girl is killed, the tables are unexpectedly turned. The gang finds itself outsmarted by an urbane and seasoned killer determined to ensure that no one lives…
NO ONE LIVES is a smart and original horror movie with at its heart a killer in the grip of a dark and twisted love affair.
Cameron McCracken, Managing Director of Pathe UK, said: "It was impossible to resist Ryuhei's passionate vision for this project and his desire to create an iconic anti-hero for our times. WWE Studios have been ideal partners and we look forward to many other shared ventures!"
"WWE Studios maintains a flexible business model that allows us to seek out partners to co-finance, produce and distribute films of all genres to appeal to our fans' wide array of film tastes," said Michael Luisi, EVP Business Development, WWE. "Teaming up with Pathe is the perfect example. We look forward to co-producing 'No One Lives' with one of the leaders in the industry."
Harry Knapp, Producer, said; "We are thrilled at the prospect of working with Luke, one of the most talented actors of his generation. We know he is going to create a truly memorable villain!"
Pathé Distribution will distribute the film in France; and Twentieth Century Fox will distribute the film in the UK on Pathe's behalf. Pathe International will handle international sales.
