A new sci-fi thriller is on the way from Amazon Studios. The company is working with writer and director Michael Mohan’s to create “The Voyeurs,” and production started in Montreal, Canada. The new thriller will star Sydney Sweeney, Justice Smith, Ben Hardy and Natasha Liu Bordizzo. The project is produced by Greg Gilreath and Adam Hendricks, with Zac Locke executive producing. “The Voyeurs” will launch exclusively worldwide on Amazon Prime Video.
The official description reads, “When Pippa and Thomas move into their dream apartment, they notice that their windows look directly into the apartment opposite – inviting them to witness the volatile relationship of the attractive couple across the street. But when they attempt to anonymously intercede in their lives, they unwittingly set in motion a chain of events that will lead to disaster.”
“We live in a strange era where it is entirely socially acceptable to peer into the lives of complete strangers by looking at the manicured and cultivated version of the lives, they’d like us to think they lead. With The Voyeurs, we’re asking a simple question: is it okay to watch? I’m thrilled to be working with Amazon Studios to bring back the erotic thriller genre with this film,” said director Michael Mohan.
Producers Divide/Conquer added, “We could not be more excited about having Amazon Studios as a partner on this film. The Amazon team have supported Michael and this film from day one, and there couldn’t be a better home for it. Amazon’s history of supporting smart and ambitious cinema, coupled with the know-how, enthusiasm, and all-around great taste of everyone at the company has made this partnership an incredible experience.”
“As we further expand our slate and offerings, we’re excited to deliver edgy, psychosexual thrillers like The Voyeurs to our global customers. Filmmaker Michael Mohan, his team and our exciting cast are creating the perfect story that will engage and enthrall audiences,” said Julie Rapaport, Co-Head of Movies at Amazon Studios.
The director of photography is Elisha Christian, with production design led by Adam Reamer. Amey René handled casting, and costume design is by Romy Itzigsohn. Michael Mohanis co-created the Netflix series “Everything Sucks!,” and he directed 7 of the 10 episodes. Prior to that, he’s made 2 independent features and 2 short films, all of which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. The latest, “Pink Grapefruit,” won the Grand Jury Prize at the SXSW Film Festival, and was subsequently released by The New Yorker.
