At long last we have some news about the latest installment in the Amityville series. Arrow in the Head recently sat down with producer Jason Blum to get some insight on why the film was unceremoniously pulled from its scheduled release date (which was originally slated for the first week of January 2015).

Blum told the site:

“We’re still in post on it. I’m very, very happy with it. We’re continuing to have conversations with Dimension and Weinstein about how it’s going to come out, but it’s definitely going to come out. I think people are going to like it, Jennifer Jason Leigh is great in the movie. I’m hoping to do another movie with Franck. I’m really pleased with it, my guess is we’ll announce when it’ll come out sometime in the next twelve months.”

When Arrow asked if Blum was having conflicts with The Weinstein Company over the cut of the film, he offered the following:

“Like a lot of the movies that we do, we’re just tinkering with it and trying to make it better. We’re pretty close now. We went back and forth over the cut of the movie, which we’re happy with now. We’re just tinkering with the movie in post-production.” 

Stay tuned for more updates on this title as they are released.
