XYZ Films Acquires Horror-Thriller ‘Sound of Silence’

XYZ Films announces it has acquired all worldwide rights to the English-language horror-thriller SOUND OF SILENCE, directed by T3 (Alessandro Antonaci, Daniel Lascar, Stefano Mandala). Set in Italy, the film stars Penelope Sangiorgi, Rocco Marazzita, Lucia Caporaso, Daniele De Martino, Chiara Casolari, Alessandra Pizzullo and Peter Stephen Wolmarans and is produced by T3, Raffaele Rinaldi and Riccardo Scalva.

XYZ Films is planning a spring 2023 domestic release. The deal was brokered by Marios Rush on behalf of the filmmakers and XYZ Films’ Alex Williams.

When Emma (Sangiorgi) returns to her home in Italy to find out what happened to her parents, she must unlock the mystery of an old radio that brings back spirits from the past.

This is the feature film debut of the Italian-based T3 directing trio of Antonaci, Lascar and Mandala. Their short film THE CRYING BOY was an Official Selection at Screamfest 2019.

Alex Williams adds: “XYZ is thrilled to come aboard this uniquely terrifying ghost story and to continue our tradition of supporting international talent. We can’t wait to unleash SOUND OF SILENCE on audiences here in the United States and around the globe. Fans of haunted house films like INSIDIOUS will love this one.”

XYZ’s current projects include THE BLACK KAISER with Mads Mikkelsen, HOUNDS OF WAR starring Frank Grillo, Robert Patrick and Rhona Mitra, and the Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead film SOMETHING IN THE DIRT which premiered at Sundance 2022. Its current slate also includes Nic Cassavetes’ GOD IS A BULLET starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Maika Monroe and Jamie Foxx, NOCEBO directed by Lorcan Finnegan with Eva Green and Mark Strong, and ACCUSED from BAFTA-nominated BOILING POINT director Phillip Barantini. XYZ is in post-production on the Netflix Original HAVOC, directed by Gareth Evans and starring Tom Hardy and Forrest Whitaker.
