James Wan’s MALIGNANT Wraps Filming

James Wan’s new horror movie Malignant started shooting in Los Angeles earlier this year and will eventually go head-to-severed-head with Escape Room 2 in August 2020.

And today Wan let us all know that filming has wrapped.

Wan broke the news over on Instagram writing: “So we wrapped principal photography on MALIGNANT over the weekend. Big THANK YOU to an amazing cast and crew!! You all worked hard and delivered something special! Can’t wait to get into post.”

Check out his post below.

The film stars Annabelle Wallis (AnnabelleThe Mummy), George Young (Containment), Jake Abel (Supernatural), Maddie Hasson (God Bless America), Michole Briana White (Encino Man), and Jacqueline McKenzie (Netflix’s Pine Gap).

Plot details are under wraps but Wan has said that he’s super excited to go back to his indie roots with this hard-R thriller. An original horror idea (not a reboot/remake or anything based on existing IP) with old school, practical effects and no giant, blue screen sets.

The “hard-R thriller” with “old school, practical effects” is written by Wan along with The Nun actress Ingrid Bisu, who married Wan earlier this year. Wan also produces with Michael Clear. The film is being independently financed through Starlight Media and Midas Innovation, who will retain distribution rights in China.

James Wan’s Malignant will open against Adam Robitel’s Escape Room 2 on August 14, 2020.
