Shout! Studios has nabbed the North American rights to a social thriller called Caged. Premiere Entertainment Group is handling the projects rights during the virtual Toronto International Film Festival, according to a report on Deadline.
The flick follows the story of an African American male who has imprisoned and placed in solitary confinement after being found guilty of murdering his wife. While in confinement, he becomes haunted by internal demons and his dead wife while being pushed to the breaking point by an abusive female guard.
Directed by Aaron Fjellman, the film stars Edi Gathegi, Melora Hardin, Angela Sarafyan, Tony Amendola, Robert R. Shafer and James Jagger.
“After a global pandemic sentenced the world to solitary confinement, a series of infuriating tragedies have inspired a moment in time where it seems change is finally within our grasp,” says Aaron Fjellman of Panic House Films. “Shout! Studios share our creative vision and have the expertise to present our film to a North American audience, making them the perfect partner.”
