Case 39 opens August 13 – in New Zealand

Renee Zellweger and Jodelle Ferland in CASE 39Paramount has delayed its previously announced August release of this horror-thriller in the U.S. Instead CASE 39 will makes it debut in New Zealand on August 13, followed by Australia on August 27. After opening in Russia and Europe, the film will make its way to Britain on September 25. As for the U.S., no firm date is set, but the film is supposed to come out sometime this year.

The story follows a social worker (Rene Zellweger) who runs into terrifying trouble when she rescues a young girl (Jodelle Ferland) from parents who try to kill her. That the child’s name is Lilith (the name of an ancient demon before it was co-opted by a certain faction of the feminist movement) may suggest that Lilith is not the innocent child she apepars to be. Directed by Christian Alvart, from a scrpt by Ray Wright.
