Bryan Bertino, the first filmmaker to have a major motion picture on the top 10 film rental lists through both Redbox and Netflix, has signed with The William Morris Endeavor Entertainment (WME) talent agency.
The director of movies such as “The Strangers” and “Mothman” will be represented by WME-IMG, a joint venture between WME and IMG. WME-IMG was formed in late 2014. Bertino will also be repped by Magnolia Entertainment, part of the Mark Gordon Company. Redbox has been a key partner in the success of my films and I’m very excited to be working with WME,” Bertino said. “I love what they’re doing and can’t wait to see where we go together.”
Introduction to The Strangers: Prey at Night
In the not-too-distant future, a young married couple, Chris and Alice Nelson are driving along a lonely stretch of road late. Also, one night when they come across another vehicle in their path. Unable to avoid a collision, the driver of the other car mysteriously disappears amid smoke and flames. And never to be seen again. This is the opening scene of “The Strangers,” a darkly comedic thriller that sees these two strangers thrust into the strangest of circumstances. We know very little about these characters, and as such, they somehow feel familiar to us. Also, as we watch them deal with hallucinations, and try to stay one step ahead of a masked assailant. Yet something isn’t quite right — something this strange couple glimpses in the darkness of their home.

The storyline of The Strangers: Prey at Night
In this sequel to “The Strangers” we follow a group of friends vacationing at a secluded cabin in the woods for a much-needed break from their busy lives. After settling into their new accommodations, panic sets in when they realize that something is stalking them and it doesn’t plan on going away anytime soon. After a series of mysterious events that culminate with the murder of one of their party and a visit from an uninvited guest, they must fight for their lives against an unknown assailant who will stop at nothing to maintain his nefarious agenda.
Bryan Bertino joins WME as a writer-director
Bryan Bertino, the writer, and director of The Strangers have signed with WME. The Strangers was one of the first horror films to capitalize on psychological suspense rather than overt violence and gore. It’s not as explicit in showing its terrors as many other horror movies are now. What made it so terrifying was that you never knew when they would strike or who they would target next. Since the movie involves three masked figures who terrorize a young couple staying in a remote home, WME’s Doug MacLaren negotiated the deal with CAA. In addition to writing and directing The Strangers, Bertino made his directorial debut with Monster, a 2007 Sundance hit that he also wrote. It was also produced by Bryan Bertino’s production company Dark Sky Films and Samuel Goldwyn Films.
