Inside

Shot in Germany in June of ’21, Vasilis Katsoupis‘ directorial debut has been lingering around long enough to find a distrib and big festival premiere with a Panorama slot at the upcoming Berlinale. Focus Features have earmarked the taught thriller with a mid-March release. Willem Dafoe stars as a high-end art thief who becomes trapped in a luxury, high-tech penthouse in New York’s Times Square after his heist does not go as planned in this item. Katsoupis’ previous feature was actually a 2016 docu My Friend Larry Gus. Inside Katsoupis teams with Color Out of Space‘s cinematographer Steve Annis and Leonardo Bigazzi as art curator — as that penthouse featured in Inside is loaded in actual pricey art pieces. Greek producer Konstantinos Kontovrakis (Triangle of Sadness) produces with Marcos Kantis and Dries Phlypo.

Gist: Written by Ben Hopkins, the high-concept psychological suspense drama is about a high-end art thief, Nemo (Dafoe), who becomes trapped in a luxury, high-tech penthouse in New York’s Times Square after his heist does not go as planned. He is locked inside this luxury house, adorned with exquisite works of art that he covets and admires, but now he must use all his cunning and invention to survive for months on his own.

Release Date/Prediction: The Berlin Film Festival premiere will be followed by a March 10th release.
