Michael Keaton Plays a Baddie Again in Penthouse North


Dimension Films acquires thriller

Dimension Films announced that it has acquired U.S. distribution rights to the film Penthouse North from director Joseph Ruben (Sleeping With the Enemy).

The thriller stars Michael Keaton and Michelle Monaghan.

Sara Taylor (Monaghan), a photojournalist blinded in Iraq, is forced to play a deadly game of cat and mouse with the sadistic criminal Hollander (Keaton) – a man who will stop at nothing to get a fortune of stolen diamonds hidden in Sara’s penthouse apartment. Although Sara claims to not know where the diamonds are, Hollander utilizes psychological and physical torture in an effort to break Sara’s resistance. But Sara fights back. As the suspense builds to a shattering climax, Sara gains the advantage. But will it be enough to save her?

Right on… Keaton back to playing a creep. I’m into it.

Ruben also directed the original The Stepfather, it should be noted.

Production begins on the film in Canada next month.
