Genre legend Sam Raimi is gearing up to bring you the horror-thriller Don’t Move, announced today. His company Raimi Productions and Alex Lebovici’s Hammerstone Studios (2022 box-office hit Barbarian) are reuniting with Christian Mercuri’s Capstone Studios to produce the new movie, whose casting is now underway.
Don’t Movie is directed by Adam Schindler and Brian Netto, who recently helmed episodes of Raimi’s horror anthology series “50 States of Fright.” Schindler reunites with writers T.J. Cimfel and David White, who also wrote Intruders, which Schindler directed.
Don’t Move follows a seasoned killer who injects a grieving woman with a paralytic agent. She must run, fight and hide before her body completely shuts down.
The film is produced by Lebovici, Raimi, and Zainab Azizi. Hammerstone Studios, Raimi Productions, and Capstone Studios recently partnered to produce the action-thriller Boy Kills World starring Bill Skarsgard, currently in post-production.
Raimi Productions’ upcoming projects include Sony Pictures’ thriller 65 starring Adam Driver. Earlier this year, Raimi directed Marvel’s global sensation Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness starring Benedict Cumberbatch.
Executive produced by Christian Mercuri, David Haring, Marc Manus, Adam Schindler, Brian Netto, and Petr Jákl, Hammerstone co-financing Don’t Move alongside Capstone Global handling worldwide rights.
“It’s amazingly exciting for us to reunite with the genre master Sam Raimi, and Zainab Azizi, who yet again have found two extremely talented young filmmakers in Adam and Brian to bring Don’t Move to life. We are honored to be part of such a fantastic project,” said Hammerstone Studios’ Alex Lebovici.
“Alex and the team at Hammerstone as well as our friends at Capstone are the ideal production partners as we bring this compelling and twisted tale to light. I am delighted to collaborate again with our co-directors Adam and Brian on this incredibly frightening and tense story full of so many twists and turns – it will deliver a fantastic horror punch to the audience!” added Sam Raimi.
