Deadline is reporting that Dennis Quaid, Meagan Good, Michael Ealy and Joseph Sikora have been cast in Deon Taylor‘s The Intruder for Screen Gems.
Written by David Loughery, the film is a psychological thriller about a young married couple who buys a beautiful Napa Valley home only to find that the man they bought it from refuses to let go of the property, and he slowly terrorizes them. Quaid plays the seller and Good and Ealy play the couple who discover that the motivated seller has no intention of vacating the premises.
Screen Gems senior exec Eric Paquette brought the picture after it completed production under the title Motivated Seller.
The Intruder is produced by Hidden Empire Film Group, the production company backed by Robert F. Smith, the former chemical engineer and investment banker who is the founder, chairman and CEO of the private-equity firm Vista Equity Partners. Smith has been with Taylor since the start of the filmmaker’s career, as exec producer of his early films Dead Tone, The Hustle, Chain Letter, Supremacy and Meet the Blacks. Taylor is producing with Roxanne Avent and Smith with Mark Burg, Brad Kaplan and Jonathan Schwartz.
