Simon Oakes, Vice-Chairman of Exclusive Media and President & CEO of Hammer announced today that Hammer, an Exclusive Media Company, begins principal photography on The Quiet Ones, the supernatural thriller/horror which will shoot on location in Oxfordshire.
Starring Jared Harris (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, Mad Men) and Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), The Quiet Ones will be directed by John Pogue (Quarantine 2: Terminal). Joining the cast are Erin Richards (Breaking In, Being Human), Olivia Cooke (The Secret of Crickley Hall, The Fuse) and West End theater actor Rory Fleck-Byrne. With the story and original screenplay by Tom DeVille, revisions by Craig Rosenberg, Oren Moverman and most recently John Pogue, the film is produced by James Gay-Rees (Senna, Exit Through the Gift Shop) and Ben Holden in association with TPSC Films.
Inspired by true events, The Quiet Ones tells the story of an unorthodox, but charismatic Professor (Harris) who uses controversial methods and leads his best students off the grid to take part in a dangerous experiment: to create a poltergeist from negative human energy.
The film's creative team includes the cult favorite genre editor Glenn Galrand (Grindhouse, Rob Zombie's Halloween series), award winning cinematographer Matyas Erdely (Miss Bala); costume designer Camille Benda (Junkhearts, The Holding) and production designer Matthew Gant (Hush).
Exclusive Media's President of Worldwide Production & Acquisitions, Tobin Armbrust, is overseeing production alongside Head of Physical Production, Jillian Longnecker. TPSC Film's President, Steven Chester Prince, is a producer on the project for the newly formed independent film division of The Traveling Picture Show Company. Sales are being handled by Alex Walton, Exclusive Media's President of International Sales and Distribution.
