XYZ Films has announced that the thriller The Invitation will begin principal photography in Los Angeles in the summer of 2012. Directed by Karyn Kusama (Jennifer’s Body, Girlfight), the film was scripted by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi (Clash of the Titans, R.I.P.D.) and will star Luke Wilson (“Enlightened”) and an ensemble cast that includes Zachary Quinto (Star Trek), Topher Grace (Traffic) and Johnny Galecki (“The Big Bang Theory”).
On a dark night, Will (Luke Wilson) is invited to his estranged ex-wife’s dinner party. Over the course of the evening, he is gripped by mounting evidence that something insidious has taken hold of his ex-wife, and that she and her new friends have a mysterious and horrifying agenda. By the end of the night, the ramifications of what happens in this house will spread far beyond its doors.
XYZ Films will produce alongside Martha Griffin (Girlfight) and Hay and Manfredi.
