Lionsgate Takes Eli Roth’s Knock Knock



The latest from Eli Roth, and his first Sundance premiere, has come out of its Midnight slot with one of the big deals of the festival.

Variety broke the news that Keanu Reeves starrer, Knock Knock has sold to Lionsgate for a reported 2.5 million. The film sees Reeves star as a wealthy architect whose weekend is upended when two beauties (Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas) show up at his door in need of help. The pair turn out to be violently set on destroying his life. The film, written by Roth, Nicolas Lopez and Guillermo Amoedo is heavily inspired by 1978’s Death Game

Knock Knock premiered Friday night to mixed reception, with some loving the nuttiness and others finding it a disappointment from Roth. You can see Shock’s review of the film here
