Exclusive: Amityville: The Awakening Pulled From Release; Put Back to Sleep!
There’s trouble brewing in Amityville, and we’re not talking about the town. Word came across our desks just minutes ago that the Weinsteins have officially cancelled the April release of Amityville: The Awakening!
Dimension Films was set to release Amityville: The Awakening wide on April 1, 2016. Look for an official announcement soon.
Amityville: The Awakening was trimmed from an R rating down to a PG-13 for “disturbing horror violence and terror, suggestive images, brief language and thematic material.” The previous R rating was for “strong horror violence and language.”
The film stars Bella Thorne, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Cameron Monaghan, Thomas Mann, Taylor Spreitler, Mckenna Grace, and Kurtwood Smith. Daniel Farrands and Casey La Scala co-wrote the script and produce with Jason Blum of hit factory Blumhouse. Franck Khalfoun (Maniac) directs.
Belle and her family move into a new house, but when strange phenomena begin to occur in the house, Belle begins to suspect her mother isn’t telling her everything and soon realizes they just moved into the infamous Amityville house.
