Indie distributor Neon has reportedly acquired the Steven Soderbergh-directed and David Koepp-scripted ghost story “Presence” following its screening at the Sundance Film Festival.

The story follows a family who moves into a suburban house and becomes convinced they are not alone – a supernatural presence is there and has taken an interest in the couple’s daughter.

Lucy Liu, Chris Sullivan, Callina Liang, Julia Fox, Eddy Maday and West Mulholland co-star while Julie M. Anderson and Ken Meyer produce.

The film is currently sitting at a 100% (7.5/10) score on Rotten Tomatoes with multiple reviews praising the 85 minute feature praising it for being a very lean ghost story tale with more focus on tension than jump scares and a very satisfying ending.

The acquisition also comes decades after Soderbergh’s breakout film “sex, lies, & videotape” sold at Sundance for $1 million bck in 1989 – helping independent film become a major business.

Neon reportedly beat out up to ten bidders for the project which was shot entirely in a single location.
