Keaton & Monaghan's Penthouse

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 Forgotten, Return to Paradise). The thriller stars Michael Keaton (The Other Guys) and Michelle Monaghan (Source Code, Machine Gun Preacher). The announcement was made today by Bob Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Company.

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?

Michael Keaton and Michelle Monaghan will star.

Jeff Sackman and Michael Baker are producing the film along with Ruben. Also producing is screenwriter David Loughery (Obsessed, Lakeview Terrace). Jon Shiffman joins as executive producer.

"I am excited to be working with Joe Ruben and am a big fan of his previous work," said Bob Weinstein. "I couldn't be happier to join forces with the talented Keaton and Monaghan on this chilling thriller."

"I am delighted to be in business with Bob Weinstein and his team at Dimension Films," said Sackman. "I am looking forward to this exciting collaboration."

The deal was negotiated for Dimension Films by Andrew Kramer, President of Business and Legal Affairs and Michal Steinberg, SVP, Business/Legal Affairs and Acquisitions; International Creative Management; and Jeff Sackman. International Creative Management helped package the film and co-represented US rights. Keaton is represented by International Creative Management and Ziffren Brittenham. Monaghan is represented by International Creative Management, D/F Management, and Sloane Offer Weber and Dern. Loughery is represented by International Creative Management and Graup Entertainment.

Penthouse North begins production in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada on December 7th.
