Saban films acquires sci-fi thriller Vivarium 

Starring Jessie Eisenberg and Imogen Poots, the film finds dream house buyers trapped in a nightmarish suburban twilight zone

Published: 12th July 2019

Saban Films has acquired the US rights to Vivarium, the Jesse Eisenberg and Imogen Poots-starring sci-fi suspense thriller.

Directed by Lorcan Finnegan, the film portrays a young couple (Poots and Eisenberg) looking to buy a dream starter home, only to be trapped by a mysterious real estate agent in a nightmarish housing development.

During the Cannes film festival, Finnegan described the film as a dark, twisted and surreal story about the kind of life many are tricked into living and trapped within.

"We are very impressed with Lorcan’s elevated genre piece, heightened with the strong-caliber performances of Imogen and Jesse,” said Saban Films president Bill Bromiley said in a statement.

Fantastic Films’ Brendan McCarthy and John McDonnell produced Vivarium, in association with Lovely Productions. XYZ Films executive produces and is handling global sales. The U.S. distribution deal was negotiated by Saban Films’ Ness Saban, along with CAA Media Finance and XYZ Films acting on behalf of the filmmakers.
