Though it’s often said that good things are worth the wait, I admit to being pretty bummed to learn that Sinister director Scott Derrickson’s next film wasn’t going to be released until January of 2015. Thankfully, that long wait has just been slashed by nearly six months!
Screen Gems has just announced that they’ll be releasing Beware the Night way ahead of schedule, putting it into theaters on July 2nd of next year. This move speaks volumes in regards to how confident they are about the movie, which they hope will scare up big time box office numbers, the way The Conjuring did this past summer. We shall see!
Joel McHale, Sean Harris, Edgar Ramirez, and Olivia Munn star in Beware the Night alongside Eric Bana. The film re-teams Clint Culpepper’s Sony-based company with The Exorcism of Emily Rose tandem of Scott Derrickson and Paul Boardman. The film is a paranormal thriller that will be produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Films. Derrickson will direct a script he and Boardman wrote.
In the flick Bana plays an Irish Catholic cop working a case when he meets a renegade priest (Ramirez). Despite the cop’s beliefs, he’s convinced by the priest that there is a demonic element, and together they work to solve the case and combat the paranormal forces working against them. Munn plays the cop’s wife, who also has a tie to the case.
Screen Gems is hoping this will blossom into a franchise.
