‘Speak No Evil’ Remake from Blumhouse Moves into September Release Date

The bone-chilling Danish horror movie Speak No Evil is getting a remake here in the States courtesy of Blumhouse and Universal, and the film has a new release date this week.

Originally scheduled for theatrical release on August 9, 2024, Universal will now be releasing their Speak No Evil remake in U.S. theaters a little later on September 13, 2024.

The Speak No Evil remake has been rated “R” for…

“Some strong violence, language, some sexual content and brief drug use.”

While we wait for a trailer, you can watch the original movie’s trailer below.

James Watkins (The Woman in Black, Eden Lake) is directingSpeak No Evil for Blumhouse and Universal, with Mackenzie Davis (Terminator: Dark Fate, Happiest Season) and James McAvoy (Split, Glass) set to star. Scoot McNairy (Argo) will also star.

Deadline reminds, “In the original 2022 movie, a Danish family visits a Dutch family they met on a holiday. What was supposed to be an idyllic weekend slowly starts unraveling as the Danes try to stay polite in the face of unpleasantness.”

James Watkins also wrote the script for the Speak No Evil remake.

Jason Blum will produce the upcoming film for Blumhouse, with Paul Ritchie, Christian Tafdrup, Jacob Jarek, and Bea Sequeira serving as Executive Producers.

Directed by Christian Tafdrup, the original Speak No Evil was selected as one of Bloody Disgusting’s 12 Best International Horror Movies of 2022. Daniel Kurland raved about the highly distressing Danish nightmare, “This claustrophobic character study eerily examines the nature of evil and the chilling realization that there doesn’t always need to be a reason for wickedness. Speak No Evil feels like the twisted Danish cousin to Barbarian and every tense moment of silence feels like it could evolve into a totally different type of horror.”
