James Wan's Malignant Sets Summer 2020 Release Date
Production is ongoing for the upcoming horror film from Atomic Monster.
By Chris Morse
The upcoming new horror movie from James Wan, officially titled Malignant, has finally settled on a late summer release date. According to Deadline, Warner Bros. will release the film on August 14th, 2020, a little early for the Halloween horror boom but right on schedule for this ongoing production.
The specifics of this project still very much remain a mystery, with plot details being kept heavily under wraps, but on top of directing, Wan also co-wrote alongside Ingrid Bisu (The Nun). The film is being produced via the Atomic Monster banner, which is led by the director and longtime collaborator Michael Clear. Financing are Starlight Media and Midas Innovation, who will retain distributing rights in China.
Starring in Malignant is Annabelle Wallis (Annabelle, Annabelle: Creation), George Young (The CW’s Containment), Jake Abel (Supernatural), Maddie Hasson (Impulse, Mr. Mercedes), Michole Briana White (Lila & Eve, Spell), and Jacqueline McKenzie (Pine Gap, Deep Blue Sea). Specific character details are not yet available at this time.
Production is currently underway in Los Angeles and should be complete before Wan moves forward on Aquaman 2 next year. The movie is currently scheduled to be released on August 14th, 2020. As always, we’ll be sure to keep you updated with all the latest here on Dead Entertainment.
