Plagued with problems since its announcement more than two years ago, the horror film from the Weinstein Co. and Dimension Films has been postponed. This is not the first time the release has been delayed. However, it is the first time no new date has been scheduled.
The film was originally scheduled for early 2015, and then was moved around the calendar three times in 2017.
Dimension Films collaborated with Blumhouse Productions on the latest haunted house sequel. It stars Bella Thorne, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Cameron Monaghan, Thomas Mann and Kurtwood Smith. The plot centers around a single mom (Leigh), who moves into the fabled house on Long Island with her three kids. One of the children, teenager James, is in a prolonged coma when they arrive. And then strange things start happening when the other kids learn about the house’s dark history.
Franck Khalfoun directed “Amityville: The Awakening.” His prior film credits include a handful of horror films including “P2,” “Maniac,” and “I Lived.”
Principle photography on “Amityville” finished three years ago.
