Amityville: The Awakening doesn’t hit theaters until April of 2016, and to quench our thirst for endless horror franchises and silbings in questionably sexy photo shoots Dimension has released this new pic of stars Cameron Monaghan and Bella Thorne.
Thorne and Monaghan play brother and sister in the film. Kinda reminds of a certain creepy incest plot from Amityville 2: The Possession. Dimension says there will be no such shenanigans in their movie, thank goodness. Cameron Monaghan does seem to be channeling Sonny Montelli here for sure.
Dimension’s entry into the Amityville franchise seems to have been languishing in no man’s land since we first saw that great trailer last year. Amityville: The Awakening was supposed to come out in January but was yanked from the schedule for reshoots and other mysterious movie-people terms.
With another new film coming out soon…The Lazarus Effect…producer Jason Blum let slip some info on the Amityville movie. Here is what he had to say:
“We’re still in post on it. I’m very, very happy with it. We’re continuing to have conversations with Dimension and Weinstein about how it’s going to come out, but it’s definitely going to come out. I think people are going to like it, Jennifer Jason Leigh is great in the movie. I’m hoping to do another movie with Franck. I’m really pleased with it, my guess is we’ll announce when it’ll come out sometime in the next twelve months.”
Personally I am hoping for a Halloween release.
According to those in the know, Dimension’s new Amityville film is done and they are preparing a trailer. No word on when we will see it but I have my money on Halloween. The rumor mill also has revealed that the movie has a new name as well.
First it was Amityville: The Lost Tapes, then it became just Amityville. Now the movie is called Amityville: The Awakening. Makes me wonder if this is a reboot of sorts and might be setting up another series of movies. A guy can hope!
Amityville: The Awakening, starring Jennifer Jason Leigh and Bella Thorne arrives in theaters January 2, 2015.
