The horror-thriller was filmed in Bulgaria over the summer, after an interim agreement allowed the cast and crew to film during the SAG-AFTRA strike. Variety reports that Signature Entertainment is the first distributor to snap up the rights to the film, and will release the movie in the UK and Ireland.
The film is currently in post-production, and doesn't have a release date yet.
Don't Move follows a grieving woman who is injected with a paralytic agent by a seasoned killer, meaning that she must get to safety before her body shuts down.
A statement from Signature reads: "Seeing [directors] Adam [Schindler] and Brian [Netto]'s evolution from working with Sam on his anthology series [50 Stages of Fright] to mentoring them for their first feature highlighted the pair as horror directors to watch. We're big fans of horror at Signature and think Don't Move will have U.K. audiences gripped to their seats."
Other recent UK and Ireland acquisitions made by Signature include Laurence Fishburne's The Astronaut, and Rebel Wilson's Bride Hard.
When the project was announced back in May, producer Alex Lebovici said: "The fiercely talented Kelsey and Finn have taken starring turns in some of the most beloved suspense-driven projects currently in the market, making the perfect pair to bring this visceral, pulse-racing story to life."
A release date for Don't Move is yet to be announced.
