The recently-announced partnership between James Wan’s Atomic Monster and Jason Blum’s production company is set to yield more movies.
It was announced recently that James Wan’s production company Atomic Monster would be forming a partnership with Blumhouse Productions, with both companies operating as part of Universal Pictures. The move was designed to increase the scope and scale of each company’s respective horror productions and increase the collaborations that we’ve already seen with films like the upcoming M3gan which has been earning rave reviews.
Now the two companies have announced another collaboration in the form of Night Swim, a ‘supernatural thriller built around the hidden source of terror found in an iconic backyard swimming pool.’
The film is set for a January 19th 2024 release under the Universal Pictures banner, with Wan and Blum sharing production credits.
Wyatt Russell and Kerry Condon are set to star. Following a sizeable role in The Falcon And The Winter Soldier, Russell is set to feature in the MCU’s Thunderbolts movie, whilst Condon can currently be seen sharing the screen with Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson in The Banshees Of Inisherin. Bryce McGuire will helm the project.
McGuire’s directorial credits so far include The White Room and Never Ever for Blumhouse. We don’t know a lot else about this project at the moment but we’ll let you know more as we do.
