The film will be fully financed by Black Bear Pictures, which is producing along with Franco’s Ramona Films. Shooting begins April in Oregon.

Joe Swanberg and Chris Storer are also producing and Black Bear’s Michael Heimler is executive producing along with Sean Durkin.
The Rental is a character-driven horror thriller about two couples who rent a vacation home for what should be a celebratory weekend get-away.
