CAA Signs ‘His House’ Director Remi Weekes

Exclusive: CAA has signed filmmaker Remi Weekes, whose debut film His House made its premiere in January at the Sundance Film Festival.

Co-written by Weekes, Felicity Evans and Toby Venables, His House tells a story of a young refugee couple that makes a harrowing escape from war-torn Sudan. The film follows the struggle to adjust to their new life in a small English town that has an evil lurking beneath the surface. Deadline exclusively reported that Netflix acquired the global rights to the film a pre-emptive eight-figure deal.

Weekes’s first short film Tickle Monster had its U.S. premiere at SXSW in 2017. It was commissioned by Film4 for Channel 4. In addition, he helmed a variety of shorts and commercial campaigns that won numerous awards, including a Gold Lion at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.
