‘Last Night In Soho’ Now Slated For 2021 Release Date

Better late than never. The psychological horror film Last Night In Soho–previously slated for release this fall–is now scheduled to hit theaters April 23, 2021.

The Focus Features entry–directed by Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead)–this week was pushed back to next year from its original release date of Sept. 25 of this year due to the COVID-19 crisis, as reported by comingsoon.net.

Wright announced the new date on Twitter, as he wrote: “Haunted by someone else’s past, but we’ll see you in the future…it’s true. Last Night In Soho is not quite finished yet, due to COVID-19. But I’m excited for you all to experience it, at a big screen near you, on April 23, 2021.”

The honor genre apparently has been a strong lure for Wright. “I’ve always been fascinated by horror films,” he said in a past interview. “(They) harbored a fascination for me and always have been something I’ve wanted to watch and wanted to make.”

Last Night In Soho–written by Wright and Krysty Wilson-Cairns–reportedly draws its inspiration from such films as Don’t Look Now and Repulsion.

The storyline follows a young girl “who is passionate about fashion design and who mysteriously enters the 1960s where she encounters her idol, a dazzling wannabe singer. But 1960s London is not what it seems, and time seems to fall apart with shady consequences.”

The film–which stars Anya Taylor-Joy, Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie, Matt Smith, Diana Rigg and Terence Stamp–is produced by Wright, Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner and Nira Park. Focus Features and Universal Pictures International will distribute the movie worldwide.
