While we still wait for any release details for Franck Khalfoun’s (Maniac) Amityville: The Awakening, Dimension Films have announced a title change for their Jason Blum produced horror.
Amityville: The Awakening has now been titled… wait for it… drum roll please….
Amityville: The RE-Awakening! Clever that!
The last we heard on the film was back in February, when Blum offered this update:
“We’re still in post on it,” Blum tells the site. “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. Like a lot of the movies that we do, we’re just tinkering with it and trying to make it better. We’re pretty close now. We went back and forth over the cut of the movie, which we’re happy with now. We’re just tinkering with the movie in post-production.”
Amityville: The Re-Awakening is directed by Franck Khalfoun, and the cast includes Jennifer Jason Leigh stars as lead character Joan, a single mother who moves her three kids into the Amityville house. Bella Thorne, Cameron Monaghan, Taylor Spreitler, and McKenna Grace also appear in the film.
