THE SUPERNATURAL THRILLER ROUNDS OUT CAST WITH ERIN RICHARDS, OLIVIA COOKE AND RORY FLECK-BYRNE

London, England: 12 June 2012 – 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.

The Quiet Ones marks Hammer’s next production after the worldwide box office hit, The Woman in Black, starring Daniel Radcliffe, which has taken over $130 million at the box-office worldwide to date.

Other Hammer productions in the works include The Woman In Black: Angels Of Death, to be produced with Talisman, Cross Creek Pictures and Alliance Films; Boneshaker to be produced with Cross Creek Pictures; Gaslight written by newcomer Ian Fried and the newly announced The Winchester Mystery House to be produced with Imagination Design Works (IDW) and Nine/8 Entertainment.

Exclusive Media is a major force in the production and international distribution arena. Its current production slate include: the recently announced Cameron Diaz and Benicio Del Toro action comedy Agent: Century 21 to be directed by Adam Hashemi and the thriller Still Of Night to be directed by Jonathan Mostow and starring Michelle Monaghan and Susan Sarandon; Ron Howard’s epic Rush starring Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Brühl and produced with production partners Cross Creek Pictures, Imagine Entertainment, Working Title, Brian Grazer, and Revolution Films to be released in the US through Universal; End of Watch starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Peña, Anna Kendrick and America Ferrera set for release through Open Road Films on September 28; So Undercover starring Miley Cyrus; Snitch starring Dwayne Johnson and Susan Sarandon in post-production and to be released in the US through Summit Entertainment.
