Paladin has acquired theatrical rights to They Remain, a horror pic written and directed by Philip Gelatt that will get a fall release. It marks a reteam of Gelatt, with credits in the graphic novel and video game spaces, and Reno Productions, who together made the 2011 Tribeca pic The Bleeding House. The pic is based on Laird Barron’s short story -30-, which explores the evolving relationship between Keith (William Parker Jackson) and Jessica (Rebecca Henderson), scientists who are employed by a vast, impersonal corporation to investigate an unspeakable horror that took place at the remote encampment of a mysterious cult. They become close, until Jessica discovers a mysterious artifact and secrets are kept, sexual tensions arise, and paranoia sets in. Paladin’s Mark Urman negotiated the deal with Reno’s Will Battersby, who produced the pic with Peter Askin.
