‘Polaroid’ Taken Off November Release By The Weinstein Company | Film News
Amidst the scandals and continuing headlines, horror movie Polaroid has been removed by The Weinstein Company from its release schedule; its November 22 premiere date, initially advertised as August 25, has been retracted, with no explanation or long-term plan given in its replace.
Lars Klevberg‘s Polaroid, based on his own short, follows a group of teenagers who stumble upon a cursed camera that kills those captured by it. The film was set to be a franchise starter similar to producer Roy Lee‘s ventures with The Ring and The Grudge series.
However, with the cancellation of Polaroid’s 2017 premiere, whether even one film will screen at all is very much up in the air.
The move is just another development at the shambles at TWC, wrecked by Harvey Weinstein‘s incriminating behaviour towards a string of women. Still, why exactly the film has been pulled is somewhat a mystery. Is Weinstein’s involvement enough to taint the project entirely?
