Pete Davidson's horror 'Home' has been purchased for the UK

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

This feature was produced by Bill Block (“Halloween Kills”) and Sebastian K. Lemercier (“The First Purge”) directed by James DeMonaco (“Cleansing” Franchise) from a script co-written by DeMonaco and Adam Cantor. Last year, Lionsgate bought the film for the US after it was shown to buyers out of competition at the Toronto Film Festival.

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

The deal was negotiated between Signature's commercial director, Elizabeth Williams and Miramax Senior Vice President of International Production and Distribution Yvette Chuang.

“We are huge horror fans at Signature Entertainment and after watching The Home, we knew this was another excellent entry from The Purge creator James DeMonaco,” Signature said. “Fans will see Pete Davidson in a whole new light, and we look forward to scaring audiences in the UK and Ireland later this year.”

Davidson recently starred in the movie “Dumb Money,” and besides “The Home,” he also has A24’s “Wizards” with Franz Rogowski, Naomi Scott, Sean Harris, and Orlando Bloom, and “Riff-Raff” with Jennifer Coolidge, Ed Harris, Lewis. Pullman, coming.

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