As the U.S. Ambassador to Belgium, Ambassador Gutman got to know the producers of the Belgian hit movie The Loft. The producers then decided to make an English remake. The new version of The Loft was filmed partly in Belgium and partly in the United States. Among the cast was Eric Stonestreet from Modern Family. As Ambassador, Ambassador (Rtd) Gutman held a reception for the cast and crew at his Residence. Here are pictures of Ambassador (Rtd) Gutman with Eric Stonestreet and the cast and crew of The Loft.
The Loft (2014 Film) therefore is now an American-Belgian thriller directed by Erik Van Looy. It is a remake of Van Looy’s 2008 Belgian film, Loft, that received rave reviews and broke box office records in Belgium with over a million tickets sold. The film is set to debut on October 14th in Belgium at the Ghent Film Festival and in Germany on December 11th. The film’s American debut has been put on hold and will be released later than anticipated via Universal Studios.”
