Today Director James Wan shared the official release date for the upcoming horror-thriller MALIGNANT, which is being released through Warner Bros. Pictures.
On his official Instagram, the director revealed that filming was now wrapped on the film. He shared further stating that MALIGNANT was meant to be a smaller production but, due to the pandemic, it ended up prolonging filming time. Check out his official statement below:
“MALIGNANT comes out September 10th.
I finally wrapped it last week. This was supposed to be my “little horror thriller” I do between the big ones, but the pandemic pushed it as long the big ones.
I’m super excited for this film. I don’t even know how to describe it. I wanted to do something original and genre-bending, and different to my other work, but still in the spirit of the horror-thrillers I grew up with. More to come. #MalignantMovie”
MALIGNANT stars Annabelle Wallis (“Peaky Blinders”, The Mummy), Maddie Hasson (We Summon The Darkness, “Impulse”), George Young (A Bread Factory Parts 1 & 2, “Containment”), Michole Briana White (“Reed Between The Lines”, I Will Follow), Jake Abel (“Supernatural”, I Am Number Four), Jacqueline McKenzie (Deep Blue Sea, “The 4400”), and Ingrid Bisu (The Nun, Toni Erdmann).
