Ruth Wilson To Star In Osgood Perkins' “I AM THE PRETTY THING THAT LIVES IN THE HOUSE”


Bob Balaban and Lucy Boynton will round out the Cast with Principal Photography Beginning in Ottawa February 16

LOS ANGELES -- (January 19, 2016) – Golden Globe® Winner Ruth Wilson (“The Affair,” Saving Mr. Banks) will star in Osgood Perkins’ I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House, with Academy Award® Nominee Bob Balaban (The Grand Budapest Hotel, Moonrise Kingdom) and Lucy Boynton (February, Miss Potter) also joining the cast. Perkins wrote the script and will be directing, with principal photography beginning in Ottawa on February 16th.

I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House follows Lily (Wilson), a young nurse hired to care for elderly Helen Bloom, a best-selling author of ghost stories who has chosen to live out her final days in her beloved country home – a home that holds an horrific ghost story of its own.

Rob Paris’ Paris Film, Inc. is producing and co-financing the film through the recently announced venture with Robert Menzies’s Ottawa-based production shingle Zed Filmworks, and Canadian real estate developer Alphonse Ghossein’s Go Insane Films.  Paris and Menzies are producing and Ghossein is executive producing.

I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House marks Perkins’ second project with Paris Film, Inc., Zed Filmworks and Go Insane Films following their successful collaboration on February, directed by Perkins and starring Emma Roberts, Kiernan Shipka and Lucy Boyton, which was acquired in the U.S. by A24 after it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Wilson is represented by CAA and Untitled, Balaban by Paradigm and Boynton by Innovative Artists. Perkins is represented by CAA.

Los Angeles-based Paris Film, Inc. and Zed Filmworks recently joined forces in a partnership with Go Insane Films to co-finance and produce a slate of 5 films over the first 2 years with production based in Ottawa.  I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House is the third project to be announced under the deal.  Other projects include: Chris Eigeman’s Trinity, which tracks the harrowing and life-changing experience of two brilliant young physicists recruited in 1943 from Columbia University to help build the first atomic bomb at Los Alamos; and Zak Hilditch’s Numbskull, which tells the story of internet sensation Billy “The Kid” O’Connor who must reconcile the extreme exploits that brought him fame and fortune while driving away his wife and daughter.
