‘The Djinn’ Selected by IFC Midnight for Release

Like a wish come true, Deadline has announced the North American screen rights to The Djinn have been awarded to IFC Midnight. The studio is aiming for a summer release.

From directors David Charbonier and Justin Powell (The Boy Behind the Door), The Djinn is the story of a young boy who cannot speak and wishes more than anything to have a voice. It is with this strong desire he awakens a devious entity that can give this to him but take more than he could even imagine. The boy must survive until the clock strikes midnight or he’ll face the ultimate doom.

Cast members include Ezra Dewey (Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders), Rob Brownstein (Breaking Bad), and Tevy Poe (Borrowed Vengeance).

The Djinn will release on May 14 this year in select theaters and on demand.

Horror News Network will give more updates as they’re announced.

Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K's that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
