We had our hopes slightly raised for a peek at Blumhouse’s remake of the acclaimed Danish chiller Speak No Evil soon… However, it looks like we’re going to have to wait a little longer as the film’s release date has been pushed back.
Originally set to release on August 9th 2024, Speak No Evil has now been pushed to September 13th, taking advantage of a date usually reserved for a certain angry goalie.
No reason was given for the change, but it’s likely it has something to do with competition from another genre piece, or simply to capitalise of the Friday the 13th date.
As we reported back in the summer, Speak No Evil stars James McAvoy in his third collaboration with Blumhouse, alongside Terminator: Dark Fate actress Mekenzie Davis.
The 2022 original is described as follows in its official logline:
“A Danish family visits a Dutch family they met on a holiday. What was supposed to be an idyllic weekend slowly starts unravelling as the Danes try to stay polite in the face of unpleasantness.”
So, whilst we must wait just a little longer for promotional material, the release is still very much on the cards, with the change likely nothing to be concerned about.
Will Speak No Evil fall into the disastrous trap of some other English language remakes? Or will it dominate the box-office? We’ll be here to report the outcome.
