Case 39: October 1
Paramount Pictures releases this horror-thriller through their subsidiary label, Paramount Vantage . Renee Zellweger stars as a social worker whose latest case is a ten-year-old girl (Jodelle Ferland) who turns out to be protected by sinister, perhaps supernatural forces. Christian Alvart (ANTIBODIES) directed from a screenplay by ray Wright. Ian McShane, Bradley Cooper, and Callum Keith Rennie co-star.
Shot over two years ago, CASE 39 was original scheduled for U.S. release in 2009. Instead, it’s made its way through Europe, Asia, South America, and even Mexico. (Meanwhile, director Alvart’s follow-up, the sci-fi monster opus PANDORUM, came and went last September). Apparently, CASE 39’s international reception was favorable enough (Louise Keller, at Australia’s Urban Cinefile, called it a “deftly made horror thriller with plenty of scares”) to convince Paramount to finally dust it off the shelves and let us have a look at it.
Release date: October 1
