Five friends share a newly purchased loft, one that will secretly serve as a safe haven from their married lives. The five friends fall into a pit of lust and adventure until one morning they make a shocking discovery. The body of a dead young woman is found in the loft and the men begin to question each other’s loyalty.
The Loft was partially shot in New Orleans. The film stars James Marsden, Karl Urban, Wentworth Miller, Rachael Taylor and Modern Family‘s Eric Stonestreet.
James Marsden leads the way in this intense thriller. Marsden has been filming a lot in Louisiana recently with roles in The Loft, D-Train, Lee Daniels’ The Butler, 2 Guns, Straw Dogs and The Best of Me, which required him to transform his physique. Scene Health and Fitness columnist Aaron Williamson trained Marsden for that film and talked about the experience here. Williamson also has more of his experiences with Marsden on his official website at aaronwilliamson.net.
The film is directed by Erik Van Looy who also directed the original film Loft in Belgium in 2008. The Loft is set to be released January 23, 2015.
