Guillermo Del Toro-Led ‘Antlers’ Loses Release Date

The terrors of 2020 are still being felt in the horror arena even as the year finally winds down–and Antlers is the latest genre film to lose its release date.

Antlers–led by producer Guillermo del Toro and director Scott Cooper–this week not only was bumped again from another release date, as reported by, but it has been removed altogether from Disney’s Searchlight Pictures schedule.

The film was slated to premiere back on Apr. 17, but that first date was scrapped due to the pandemic. So, the movie was pushed all the way back to Feb. 19, 2021–a date that has been erased now, with no word about a new release date (theatrical or otherwise) in place at this time.

In Antlers, Julia Meadows (Keri Russell), a teacher in a small Oregon town, and her police officer brother Paul (Jesse Plemons) become involved with a student (Jeremy T. Thomas), who “is secretly keeping a supernatural creature in his house.” Wonder if it fits under his bed.

Antlers–with a screenplay by Cooper, C. Henry Chaisson and Nick Antosca–was adapted from Antosca’s short story The Quiet Boy, which first appeared in the January 2019 issue of Guernica magazine.
