How often do people really fall into wells?...
...While I've never personally heard of it happening before, the "trapped in a well" trope is common in horror, and via THR, Saban Films has just acquired the North American rights to director Alex McAulay's Don't Tell a Soul, which centers around that very thing.
In Don't Tell a Soul:
"Two young brothers, when robbing a house to pay for their sick mother’s medical bills, cause a security guard to fall into a forgotten well. Trapped, the security guard (Wilson) must try to outsmart these two teenagers, as the brothers also come head to head."
The film also stars Fionn Whitehead (Dunkirk) and Jack Dylan Grazer (Shazam!).
It was produced by Chris Mangano and Merry-Kay Poe. Steve Poe, Matt Bronson and John Neace executive produced.
The film was originally supposed to play at the Tribecca Film Festival before its cancellation.
