Pete Davidson Horror ‘The Home’ Bought for U.K.



Signature Entertainment has acquired the U.K. and Ireland rights to the Pete Davidson (“The King of Staten Island”) horror film ”The Home” from Miramax.

The feature was produced by Bill Block (“Halloween Kills”) and Sébastian K. Lemercier (“The First Purge”) and is directed by James DeMonaco (“The Purge” franchise) from a script co-written by DeMonaco and Adam Cantor. Last year Lionsgate bought the film for the U.S. after it screened for buyers outside of competition at the Toronto Film Festival.

“The Home” follows former foster child Max, who begins working at a retirement home, where he quickly discovers that its residents and caretakers are harboring sinister secrets.

The deal was negotiated between Signature chief commercial officer Elizabeth Williams and Miramax’s senior vice president of international production and distribution Yvette Zhuang.

“We’re big fans of horror at Signature Entertainment and after seeing ‘The Home,’ we knew this was another excellent entry from ‘The Purge’ creator James DeMonaco,” said Signature. “Fans of Pete Davidson will see him in an all-new light, and we’re looking forward to frightening U.K. and Irish audiences later this year.”

Davidson recently starred in “Dumb Money,” and, alongside “The Home,” also has A24’s “Wizards” with Franz Rogowski, Naomi Scott, Sean Harris and Orlando Bloom, and “Riff-Raff” with Jennifer Coolidge, Dustin Hoffman and Brian Cox, coming up.

Signature recently released the George MacKay thriller “Femme,” Jodie Comer drama “The End We Start From” and Joe Keery crime caper “Marmalade.” Signature’s upcoming slate includes the Cate Blanchett drama “The New Boy” and Leonardo DiCaprio-produced animation “Ozi: Voice of the Forest.”
