Netflix has acquired the horror film “Eli” from Paramount – who the streaming giant has previously purchased “Annihilation” and “The Cloverfield Paradox” from. The film stars Charlie Shotwell (“Captain Fantastic”), Sadie Sink (“Stranger Things”) and Lili Taylor (“The Conjuring”) and is scheduled for a 2019 release.
ELI is the story of a young boy plagued with an unknown, debilitating illness that requires him to live completely sealed off from the outside world. After exhausting every option, his parents put their trust – and his life – in the hands of a doctor whose experimental, cutting edge treatments may hold Eli’s last hope. As Eli undergoes the tremendously intense process that could potentially cure him, he begins to be haunted by experiences that make him question who he can trust.
