Screen Media, a Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment Company, announced today the acquisition of the psychological thriller directed by Stephan Rick (The Super) called The Good Neighbor. The film stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers (The Tudors TV series), Luke Kleintank (Person of Interest TV series), and Bruce Davidson (The Crucible). It has a theatrical release planned in June of 2022.
A nightmarish evening unfolds when neighbors David (Luke Kleintank) and Robert (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) hit a woman on her bike and flee. When her sister arrives searching for the truth, Robert does unspeakable things to protect their secret. The film is a remake of the German thriller Unter Nachbarn which marked Rick’s feature film debut. Coming full circle, Rick now revisits his Hitchcockian thriller ten years after the making to terrify American audiences with the same question: “How well do you know your neighbor?”
