Magnolia Pictures has finally settled on its release plans for Lucky McKee and Trygve Allister Diesen’s Red, an adaptation of the Jack Ketchum novel of the same name.
The film will open in New York and Los Angeles on Friday, August 8th, with a slow rollout to more theaters to follow. Brian Cox, Tom Sizemore, Robert Englund, Kim Dickens and more star in this haunting tale about a man (Cox) who loses his only companion, a 14-year-old ginger-haired dog named Red, when some reckless teenagers with a shotgun show up at his favorite fishing spot. Determined to track them down and bring the truth out about what they did, he’s stopped at every turn by the closed minds in his small town.
We’ll have more info, including a theater/city listing for Red’s larger opening, as soon as it’s available. Red follows the tradition started by The Lost and continued with The Girl Next Door of Jack Ketchum novels made into critically acclaimed films. Hope that it comes to a town near you!
