The Loft is an upcoming American-Belgian thriller film directed by Erik Van Looy. It is a remake of the 2008 Dutch-language Belgian film Loft by the same director. The script was written by Bart De Pauw (nl) and adapted by Wesley Strick. The only remaining cast member from the original film is Matthias Schoenaerts, who will reprise the same role. The original film broke all box-office records in Belgium.

The film was shot in Summer 2011. Recently, the theatrical release of The Loft has been delayed by a change of the film distributor. Instead of Warner Bros., Universal Studios will release the film. Universal planned to release the film on August 29, 2014, but the studio has since pulled it from the schedule, and it will be released at another date.[1][2][3][4]


Five married men share ownership of an upmarket loft, which they use to discreetly meet their respective mistresses. When the body of a murdered woman is found in that loft, the men begin to suspect each other of having committed the gruesome crime, as they are the only ones with keys to the premises. Through flashbacks, which are intertwined with scenes from the present, the entire story is unraveled.


Production history[edit]

On June 6, 2011, shooting started in New Orleans. After a few weeks the cast and crew came to the studios in Brussels (Belgium). Production wrapped on July 27, 2011.[5]
