The journey to get Lionsgate's Dibbuk Box to the big screen has been a long and arduous one. The film, now known as The Possession, recently went before the MPAA and was slapped with an R rating. The filmmakers appealed, and now the final verdict is in.
Poor Dibbuk Box. First it gets a title change, and now its release date is bouncing around Hollywood like an errant piece of Flubber. Break out the old planners, folks; it's time to add a new date. Use a pencil. You never know.
Ah, yes. Generic titles. We love them. They're no nonsense and to the point. American audiences couldn't possibly deal with having to pay attention to more complicated titles like Dibbuk Box. Perish the thought.
And the generic title gods have once again smiled upon horror cinema as a means to spoon-feed the public and get their butts into seats at the theatre. Apparently Ghost House Pictures' long talked about Dibbuk Box is getting a new moniker.
A couple of tidbits of information hit Twitter today regarding two projects we've been keeping our eyes on: Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor's rip-roaring 3D sequel Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and Danish director Ole Bornedal's Dibbuk Box, which has a script by Juliet Snowden and Stiles White that was inspired by true events.
We were pretty excited already with the news that Jeffrey Dean Morgan was the first star to sign on to Lionsgate's horror thriller Dibbuk Box, and now that they've landed "The Closer" herself, Kyra Sedgwick, we're beyond thrilled.
Dibbuk Box is one of those flicks we feel as if we've been talking about forever, and to be fair, it's been at least a solid year. Finally, though, we have a name attached to the new spooker from Lionsgate!
By now we've all heard about Lionsgate's new terror flick for next October, Dibbuk Box, which is supposedly based on 100% true events (if not we've got a refresher for you), but one thing we don't know are the plot details for the flick itself. That's about to change.
Oy vey! After years in development all of a sudden there's all sorts of movement regarding the long talked about Dibbuk Box. You want we should tell you when you can see it? With Saw out of the way, Lionsgate has secured the Sam Raimi-produced Dibbuk Box to arrive in theaters next Halloween weekend on October 28, 2011.
Oy vey! After years in development a director has finally been picked to helm Dibbuk Box. You want he should bring with him maybe a schmear of terror?
Well, what do you know? As soon as we finish up one story about a book-to-film adaptation, along comes another. This one involves long-time genre fave Dean Kootz and his 2006 novel The Husband.
