Director Scott Cooper‘s highly anticipated film Antlers, produced by Guillermo del Toro, has joined the list of film delayed due to the pandemic. Originally set to arrive this April, it will now debut February 2021.
We do have some good news, a new featurette was unleashed during a ComicCon@Home panel with Cooper and del Toro. The video delves into the mythology of the Wendigo which inspired the film.
Set in an Oregon village, the film follows a teacher (Keri Russell) and her brother (Jesse Plemons), the local sheriff who become entwined with a young student (Jeremy T. Thomas) that is harboring a dark and dangerous secret.
Graham Green, Amy Madigan, Scott Haze, and Rory Cochrane co-star.
Based on the short story “The Quiet Boy” written by Nick Antosca (“Channel Zero”), Antlers was penned by Henry Chaisson and Antosca, with revisions by Cooper.
Antlers will open in theaters on February 19, 2021. You can watch the featurette and the entire Antlers panel, sponsored by Collider, below.
